cold cereal and hot shorts

I'm sure you've all heard of the old sit coms "I love Lucy" and "Ozzie and Harriet"? Well, this post is another in the life of 'Weez and Sherm'. There is nothing particularly special about Weez and Sherm. They are a Christian couple in their fifties. Yet, humor always seems to follow them! Love abounds amidst the trials of life. We hope you will enjoy this 'Marriage Chuckle'.

The alarm clock rang at 4:30 a.m. Sherm had to be at work by 6 a.m. Weez gets out of bed per usual and brews a pot of coffee. Just like most households, nothing wakes the couple up like a strong cup of joe! At least in America!

The morning routine seldom changes. Sherm heads for the shower as weez fixes breakfast. Sherm would love to have bacon, eggs, homefries with onions and toast for breakfast each morning. His doctor explained that his high blood pressure would not stand for it though. So, Weez fixes his breakfast instead of letting him fix his own. Every other morning Sherm gets lowfat high fiber oatmeal.

For some reason, the oatmeal jumped off the pantry shelf and bopped weez on the head. She fixed her glasses and as she was picking up the oatmeal box she spotted the cold oat cereal. "Sherm might like a change of pace!" Soon, Weez had sliced up a fresh orange and made a cheerful place setting for Sherm to sit at. Weez always prays in the morning as she fixes breakfast. "Let this turn out good. Show favor to Sherm today.", she prayed as she sliced the fruit.

A banana rested on the placemat next to his cereal bowl along with the sliced orange. A tall glass of ice water and his morning pills graced the table within easy reach.

Suddenly Weez remembers something. "Oh rats! I forgot to take his work shorts out of the dryer last night! I'll just take them out!" Weez rushes to the laundry room and puts the dryer back on for a minute to take out any possible wrinkles. They were folded and in his dresser drawer before he got out of the shower.

"Hey Weez, my shorts are warm." Sherm tells his wife. He sits and eats his breakfast and watches the morning news as Weez pours his coffee. "Did you just take these out of the dryer?" He asks.

"Yes, I forgot them last night." Weez confesses.

A few minutes later Sherm smiles as he tells his wife. " Cold cereal and warm shorts?"

"Well," weez says as she kisses her husband good bye at the door. "I was trying to give you something different!"

Sherm laughs! "You have been doing that for 35 years Weez!"

Proverbs 31:30 "Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
