Something New

My shrink said try something new: Found a new recipe, Made lamb chops barbecue, When my husband dug in He said ugh, oh, pee-ee-yew! So I bought a new nightie: See-through lace and bejeweled, With matching sheer pantie; My husband shut his eyes, Said that vision does fright me. So I signed up at a gym: Rid the fridge of all treats; Thought this will impress him; He said you won’t commit And you will never be slim. So I found a better shrink And a new lawyer, too; Signed the papers in ink; Now I live for myself With my husband’s chink-a-chink. 10/16/2018

Hello Deb! Well, we've only just met, and here you are popping up on my winner's list. How lovely. And well-deserved too. This was great fun - hilarious in fact. The second stanza is an absolute classic. "That vision does fright me" had me giggling for quite some time. Congratulations!
