Settling for less

image

 

It’s sad that he’s not
the object of her affection.
It’s sad that he’s not
the one she desires more than anything.
It’s just sad that he’s not
the one she can’t live without.

It’s sad that he’s not
loved for all that he is.
It’s sad that he’s not
appreciated for all his efforts.
It’s just sad that he’s not
cherished like a rare gem he’s always been.

It’s sad that he’s not
pampered and adored.
It’s sad that he’s not
her Knight in shining armor.
It’s just sad that he’s not
her one true love…her everything.

It’s sad that he’s not
aware that she’s playing him for a fool.
It’s sad that he’s not
aware she’s focused on only one thing.
It’s sad that he’s not
aware she doesn’t love him the way she should.
It’s just sad he’s not
aware that he has settled for less than he deserves.

Secrets of War

Pick your battles.
Sometimes it is necessary to retreat
To give your opponent the illusion
That you’ve surrendered.
It is then, when their guard is down,
That you launch your final attack
And the victory is yours for the taking!

Phone rings…

 

Representative:
‘Spouse For Hire’,  this is Gina speaking,  how may I help you?

Woman:
Hello Gina, my husband will be home getting my way this weekend so I’d like to make him available.

Representative:
OK, what are your husband’s skills?

Woman:
He’s great at assembling furniture but he pretends he doesn’t know how. Perhaps if he got paid he’d be more motivated!

Representative:
OK. How long will he be available?

Woman:
Hmm,  let’s see,  2hrs with my favorite book + a soak in the tub + a nap = 4 hrs. Yeah, that sounds good.

Representative:
OK,  we have a 12pm to 4pm job available.

Woman:
Perfect!!!

Representative:
I’ll make the arrangements.

 

Later that evening…

 

Woman:
Honey,  I have great news!

Her husband:
What’s that darling?

Woman:
I got you a gig for Saturday! 

Her husband:
What? I had plans of doing a whole lot of nothing this weekend!

Woman:
I know,  and now you get to make money,  isn’t that FANTASTIC!!!

Her husband:
No honey,  not fantastic,  not fantastic at all!!!

Woman:
Well look at it this way,  you get to do whatever you want with that money,  it’s all yours!

Her husband:
Huh, all mine? Well that changes everything!

Woman:
I knew you’d agree…
