World’s Worst Words (limerick)

The worst words that I’ll ever know

They show just low life can go

Oh I’d rather die

With spikes in my eye

Than hear wife say I told you so

Then you better make sure you never give her reason to utter those words, Martin!

Don't be so sure; 'any words' is better than 'no words' at all.

It is true, Martin, "I told you so"

May be a difficult refrain to hear,

But it's so much better than "Nothing!"

When you ask her, "What is wrong, my dear?"

"I told you so, " are some of the worst words. If hindsight were only 20-20!

Lol! But there is truth to this wonderful limerick. Hubbies just seem to never want to hear "I told you so." It’s like asking for directions. :-)

As a wife it is always oh so tempting to say I told you so!
