Why I Keep My Wife Happy (limerick)

Updated on September 3, 2012

When life has her singing the blues

And she feels she’s paid all her dues

Still troubles keep cropping

Bright bubbles keep popping

My wife will go shopping for shoes

      LOL rcrumple - being from Alabama does not have to be a reason why your wife's feet are so tough. Ha. However, when growing up in Georgia, we did go barefoot a lot! LOL You may be sleeping in the dog house if she ever reads this!

      Mh - sorry for interjecting here, but I had to do it.

      My wife's from a small town in Alabama. I'm lucky to get her to wear shoes. Her feet bottoms are so tough walnuts cringe when she walks by. Great Job! Really enjoyed it!
