The Broken Lawn Mower
Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other
is usually the husband. When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife
kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed. Somehow I always had
something else to take care of first; the motorcycle, the car, e-mail, fishing,
always something more important to me. Finally she thought of a clever way
to make her point.
When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily
snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a
short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a few minutes.
When I came out again I handed her a toothbrush. When you finish cutting
the grass,' I said, 'you might as well sweep the driveway!
The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.
