He may not be able to figure out what it does but at least he can be grateful that it isn't a flat pack...LOL:-))

This is funny. It is from your wife so just suck it up and fawn all over it. It doesn't have to do anything - it's from your wife! Cute limerick and I love how you humorously look at everyday life through your limericks. You have such a knack and talent for this!
