*****  Marital Quotations, #3  *****

Short quotations that summarize some of the key concepts from Marital Advice to my Grandson, Joelare scattered throughout the book.  Here are a few of those.

When your wife says, "Dear, will you help me . . . .,"
she doesn't mean next month, next week, tomorrow,
or when the game you're watching is over.

She means NOW.

So hop to it and get it out of the way and then you
can peacefully return to what you were doing.

When your wife gives you that steely-eyed, 
clinched-jaw scowl, known as "The Look,"
it means that you have obviously done
something wrong, but what?
You will find out as soon as she gets you alone. 

In interpreting what your wife's body language means,
carefully scrutinize her voice, eyes, head movement,
lips, laugh, fingers, hands, arms, and silence,
and then . . . . Guess.
