Two Doilies

As a new bride, Aunt Edna moved into the small home on her husband's ranch near Snowflake. She put a shoe box on a shelf in her closet and asked her husband never to touch it. For 50 years Uncle Jack left the box alone, until Aunt Edna was old and dying.

One day when he was putting their affairs in order, he found the box again and thought it might hold something important. Opening it, he found two doilies and $82,500 in cash.

He took the box to her and asked about the contents. "My mother gave me that box the day we married," she explained. "She told me to make a doily to help ease my frustrations every time I got mad at you." Uncle Jack was very touched that in 50 years she'd only been mad at him twice. "What's the $82,500 for?" he asked. "Oh, well that's the money I've made selling the doilies."

Yep, that's a knee slapper.

I have one caveat.
Don't I always?

SHE'S the one kickin' the bucket first. HE's in fine shape.
WHO IS GOING TO LIVE IT UP IN VEGAS WITH THE $82,000???

NOT OL' EDNA!
I don't think she was THAT smart after all.

Yeah, she made her point, but HE has the last laugh.
So is the moral of the story that it pays to irritate your wife?

And why am I the only one who saw the stupidity of her decision.
Leaving that much cash in a box?
Heck, I'd have had some FUN!
Like, maybe have ...OK,...that's gross..but the used condom packets for everytime he mistreated her?
82,500 condoms..now THAT would have made a statement.!

Makes you wonder HOW anyone could um... *giggle* .. isn't imagination great?
