|Listen To Life|
Do you ever just keep talking?
A woman is reading the local newspaper while her husband reads a magazine. All of a sudden, she bursts out laughing.
“Listen to this,” she says. “Here’s a classified ad where a guy is offering to swap his wife for a season ticket to the stadium.”
“Uh-hum,” her husband says, not looking up from his magazine.
She decides to tease him a little and says, “Honey, would you swap me for a season ticket?”
“Absolutely not!” he says.
“How sweet,” she says, “I knew you wouldn’t.”
“Of course not,” he says never looking up. “The season’s more than half over.”
Do you ever keep talking like this guy when you should have stopped? I know it’s hard to know when to say what sometimes. Here’s a good rule of thumb though, particularly for husbands like this one: less is more. The less you say, the more you get it right.
Still not sure? Then keep quiet until you Listen to Life today.
