    How to Stay Married

    A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had
    shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept
    no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a
    shoebox in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband
    never to open or ask her about.

    For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one
    day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would
    not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man
    took down the shoebox and took it to his wife's bedside.

    She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box.
    When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money
    totaling $25,000. He asked her about the contents. "When we were to be
    married," she said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a happy
    marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with
    you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll."

    The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two
    precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two
    times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with
    happiness. "Honey," he said, "that explains the doll, but what about
    all of this money? Where did it come from?"

    "Oh," she said, "That's the money I made from selling the dolls."

    I heard this one as a egg carton with 2 eggs in it and $25.00 on the side, and she put an egg in the carton every time she had an affair with another man, then every time she made a dozen she'd sell'em...

    Just got back from the craft store. Made sure to buy the plastic needles in the event I would be jabbed with them when I slept. I think I need to find a few old corks to protect myself. I think we'll have the addition in just a few years...
