The Husband Shop.

The painting above I called shades of grey and a little  red.For so many people though life is not in shades of grey it is all either black or white, right or wrong. 

This came to my mind yesterday when I heard my best friends wife joking about how long they had been married. MY friend said that that was easy to understand. As far as he was concerned there were  only two kinds of couples. The first were those that the minute things got difficult decided to get a divorce. Then there those who fought it out to the bitter end. 

His wife very quickly reminded him what she had always told him that everybody in life was allowed at least one big mistake, and he was hers. 

Fortunately it was all said with huge grins and much laughter. 

This brought to mind the story of the husband store.

A store that sells husbands has just opened in Edinburgh where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates. You may visit the store ONLY ONCE ! There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch .. you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! 

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. 

On the first floor the sign on the door reads: 
Floor 1 - These men have jobs and love the Lord. 

The second floor sign reads: 
Floor 2 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids. 

The third floor sign reads: 
Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are extremely good looking. 
“Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. 

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads: 
Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework. 
"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" 

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads: 
Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak. 

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads: 
Floor 6 - You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. 
Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day! 

Of course I am saying this with a twinkle in my eye and a smile, hope you have also.

Have a marvellous day.
