The Curtain Rods

post #1 of 5

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates, and
suitcases. On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her

On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful
dining room table by candlelight, put on some soft background music, and
feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of

When she had finished, she went into each and every room and stuffed
half- eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of all of the
curtain rods. She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the
first few days. Then, slowly, the house began to smell. They tried
everything:cleaning, mopping, and airing the place out. Vents were
checked for dead rodents, carpets were steam cleaned, and air fresheners
were hung everywhere!

Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which
they had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to
replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked. People stopped
coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid

A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could
not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out, and, eventually,
even the local realtors refused to return their calls. Finally, they had
to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her
the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she
missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce
settlement in exchange for getting the house back. Knowing his ex-wife
had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about
1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign
the papers that very day.

She agreed, and, within the hour, his lawyers delivered the paperwork. A
week later, the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the
moving company pack everything to take to their new home, including the
curtain rods.

I just love a happy ending, don't you?

Does "love" need to end in bitterness and revenge?

Is it the hope of a lifetime dashing madly on the jagged rocks of reality?

Maybe it's all a joke.

Hope dashing madly on the jagged rocks? Since I gave up hope, I feel much better.
