“EXCUSES (FROM LOSERS)” – By Des Kelly

  I have heard it all before, as a matter of fact, I have had to make excuses from time to time, myself, still, this particular “story” is a repetition anyway, that I see fit for readers of eLanka who sometimes prefer brief, yet interesting “true stories”, as this one undoubtedly is.

Telling the truth.

The wife came  home early and found her husband in their bedroom making love to a very  attractive young woman.
         
And she was somewhat upset. ‘You are a disrespectful pig!’ she cried. ‘How  dare you do this to me — a faithful wife, the mother of your children! I’m  leaving you. I want a divorce right  away!’
