The
Curtain Rods


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 things.

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 Chardonnay.

When
she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited
a few half-eaten

shrimp
shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow 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 and carpets were
steam cleaned. 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 quit. Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and
decided to move.

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
LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU????
