🤣 One Liners:
Reason for Divorce
We chatted over lunch and he dropped a bombshell on me.
“Rodney,” he said, “Becky and I are going to get a divorce.”
I was stunned.
What happened, you two seem so happy together.”
“Well,” he said, “ever since we got married, my wife has tried to change me. She got me to stop drinking, smoking, running around at all hours of the night and more. She taught me how to dress well, enjoy the fine arts, gourmet cooking, classical music and how to invest in the stock market.”
“Are you a little bitter because she spent so much time trying to change you.” I probed.
“Nah, I’m not bitter. Now that I’m so improved, she just isn’t good enough for me.”
