A Valentine Or An Idea (limerick)

Updated on June 18, 2013

I took my wife out for a treat

And all of her friends said how sweet

What they didn’t know

My reason for show

At home there was no food to eat



Not responsible for a wife who gets an idea from this limerick.

      Eating out with the wife, Martin, is fine and dandy,

      But much more expensive than giving her candy!

      Going out occasionally is a good thing.

      As Tom Waits once sang ......"better off without a wife"

      And Sir Martin - you are still the funniest man in Hub show business.

      Hey Martin never mind the wife getting the idea, I think it's a great idea.

      Now what was that phone number for the restaurant?

      Have a warm Sunday.

      From a cold, white-out Düssledorf, Germany -7 and snowing.
