This was forwarded to me in an email. There are enough faux-trees out there for the season, so a faux-apology should fit right in. I thought it was hilarious, but I hope it doesn’t give anyone any ideas!
I am sorry about getting into an argument about putting up the Christmas lights. I guess that sometimes I feel like you are pushing me too hard when you want something. I realize that I was wrong and I am apologizing for being such a hard-headed guy. All I want is for you to be happy and be able to enjoy the holiday season. Nothing brightens the Christmas spirit like Christmas lights! I took the time to hang the lights for you today; and now I will be off to the hockey rink.
Again, I am very sorry for the way I acted yesterday. I’ll be home later.
Her response –
Thank you for that heart-felt apology. I don’t often get an apology from you, and I truly appreciate it. I, too, felt bad about the argument and wanted to apologize. I realize that I can sometimes be a little pushy. I will try to respect your feelings from now on.Thank you for taking the time to hang the Christmas lights for me. It really means a lot. In the spirit of giving, I washed your truck for you; and now I am off to the mall.
I love you too!
There’s nothing too funny about the notes, but what made me laugh was the pictures that described what those “sweet” words really meant:
“A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)
Here is a warning on my daughter’s kiddie pool. Keep in mind that the “deep end” of the pool holds about 2 inches of water!
I know at times that warnings are good and much-needed (I personally know someone who burned himself by ironing his clothes while wearing them!), but the simple fact is that you can’t hardly teach a person common sense.
If someone thinks it’s a good idea to dive into 2 to 3 inches of water, then what words could a person possibly use to keep them from doing it??? EA
