She'd put up with his quirks over the years
but when he came home in that blue dress
asking to be called Rita -
she knew it was time to go!

Well, that may be embarassing about the crying Yahtzee thing, but your 160 is pure awesome!!

And hey, remember that movie Educating Rita? Great movie, won an Oscar I think.

Selma said...

I love this. That would be a dealbreaker for me too. I don't want a man who looks better in my clothes than I do. LOLZ.

EG Wow said...

Haha! Yep, time to move on!

Kay L. Davies said...

Ha!
I tried this for the first time today, and I never would have thought of an idea like that.
Thanks for the laugh.

Kay, Alberta

Pat said...

Lol! Yup, it's time to go. Good one!

SparkleFarkle said...

Hm. I think I would have just called him "Rita" and perhaps borrowed the dress from time to time. *channels Martha Stewart* Clothes swapping: it's a good thing!

Good week be yours, SparkleFarkle~~~~~*

Prayer Girl said...

That would be quirky enough for me too. LOL. BUT - I would probably be telling him to find the door, not me. :)

Haha! Who can blame her? Good job.

Thom said...

Stafford Ray said...

Since the first day the two of youi dated.
His quirkiness hadn't abated.
So was it his frock
That gave you the shock?
Or was it the colour you hated?

Deborah said...

LOL ... oh very good :o)
