It was one of those resolutions I made.
Every married person has made one.
Today I would take her to a special place!
My resolution was to make my wife smile, this day, and to give her Paradise.
So, we set out from Fort Worth.
The very first thing that I did, was drive us to the town of Paradise, and make the announcement.
"I'm taking you to Paradise!" I announced with excitement in my voice.
As we drove past the city limit sign, she just shrugged. "This?" seemed to be what her expression said. Nothing against the town, but, I think she was expecting something different. Paradise lost.
Not to be deterred I kept driving. I said: "Well, if Paradise isn't enough for you, how about letting me take you to Comfort, Texas." We drove through Comfort, and she gave the same, flat expression.
Hmmmm, I thought to myself.
TIME TO PONDER!
Perhaps this needs reflection, so we drove to the down of Ponder. No reaction at all from her.
Finally, I drove her to Happy, Texas. Her comment, "I need a clean restroom, and don't see one here."
A MAN'S DILEMMA.
Here is the dilemma. What is a man to do, when he takes his wife to Paradise, Comfort, and Happy, and she still has that flat expression on her face.
I asked: "I don't get it, where do I need to take you, so that I can see that smile on your face?"
"BOOMTOWN" she said with a grin.
