When wife asked me to tell the truth

Did she still have looks of her youth

Had brain just thought this

Soft lies offer bliss

LOL You know when they ask, they already know the truth, and want you to say otherwise . . . Oops Steve Martin always cracks me up to no end, and so adding him in this is perfect!

Voted up, awesome and funny

In His Love, Faith Reaper

Men should know by now that when a woman asks, she doesn't want to hear the truth.
