My friend Tim, age 35, finally decided to tie the knot with his long time girlfriend Andrea. I was able to attend the wedding, which was quite a shindig.
It’s a month now since the wedding day and Tim tells me that this past Friday evening, just weeks after the honeymoon, he was cleaning his golf clubs in the garage for his customary Saturday game. His wife was standing nearby, watching him meticulously scrub, rinse, then dry each and every stick in his bag.
After an extended period of silence, Andrea finally spoke. “Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married, I think it's time that you considered cutting back on your golf. Maybe you could cancel your membership at the club and we could use the extra cash to travel more on weekends.”
Tim got this horror-struck look on his face, one Andrea had never seen.
With trepidation, she asked Tim, “Darling, what's wrong?” to which Tim replied, “There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife.”
“Ex-wife!”, she shouted, “I never knew that you were married before!”
“I wasn't,” Tim countered.
