Beer Is Cool

by: henry

Calling it a day after four years of services with the company, a former lady colleague decided to return to China. As my senior and mentor, I decided to present her with a gift for rememberance purposes. Intentions were made known to my wife and off I went in search of one. Looking for a present was the hardest things to do. Finally, I decided on a white-gold chain with pendant.

Placing it on the table soon aroused the curiousity of my wife. Opened the box, took a glance, put it down and with her lower lips protruding out with face looking skyward, she marched to her room. Not knowing the seriousness of the situation I was in, came my youngest daughter. After inspecting what was inside the box, she asked “mommy, papa bought this chain for whom?” Adding petrol to fire. Instant reply, “don't ask me, ask papa yourself!” Volcano going to erupt anytime. To spare the agony of been thrown into this kind of situation, I excused myself and went out for some drinks.

By the time I reached home, my wife was already in bed. I crawled slowly onto bed making doubling sure not to wake or worse still activate the 'volcano.' By avoiding this kind of unnecessary confrontation, maybe she managed to cool herself down a bit. As for me, with beer around ... very...very...coooool.

    It was not the gift that bothered your wife, but the thought u put into the gift that bothered her. You see, to a wife a husbands thought in a gift should remain strictly to the heart of the woman he loves. So in you doing this, it struck a little hurt in her heart. Remember Henry, your wife loves you an extreme lot. You have to be quite a man to have a love like that showered upon you.

    Blessed be............................Jackie
