This is what marriage
is really all about...
He ordered one
hamburger, one order of French fries and one drink. The old
man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in
half. He placed one half in front of his wife. He then carefully
counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles
and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.
He took a sip of
the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between
them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people
around them kept looking over and whispering. You could tell
they were thinking, "That poor old couple - all they
can afford is one meal for the two of them."
As the man began
to eat his fries a young man came to th e table. He politely
offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man
said they were just fine - They were used to sharing everything.
people noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She
sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking
turns sipping the drink.
Again the young
man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal
for them. This time the old woman said "No, thank you,
we are used to sharing everything."
As the old man
finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the
young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet
to eat a single bite of food and asked "What is it you
are waiting for?"
She answered .
". . THE TEETH."
