after hours 7
A wife arrived home from a shopping trip and was horrified to find her husband in bed naked with a lovely young thing, similarly naked. Just as she was about to storm out of the house her husband stopped her and said, "Honey, before you leave, please let me explain." The wife stopped to listen.
He continued, "I was driving along the highway and I saw this young girl looking very tired and bedraggled, so I offered her a lift. She was also hungry, so I brought her home and made her a meal from the roast beef in the fridge which you didn’t like. She was wearing some very worn sandals, so I gave her a pair of shoes which you had discarded simply because they were out of style. She was cold, so I gave her the sweater I bought for your birthday - the one you never wore because the colours didn’t suit you. Her jeans were torn, so I gave her a pair of yours that were perfectly good but too tight for you to wear any more."
The wife seemed to have no problem with any of this, but still needed just one question to be answered. "That’s all fine and good," she said, "but why did I find you both in our bed with NO clothes on?"
The husband replied, "Well that’s simple... see, as she was about to leave the house, she turned to me and asked, ‘Is there anything else that your wife doesn’t use any more?’"
IF A DOG WERE YOUR TEACHER You would learn stuff like...
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
When it’s in your best interest -- practice obedience.
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
Take naps and stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout... run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
No wonder God loves little children...
