Well Excuse Me
“Honey, did you lock the garage door?”
I really didn’t know how to answer.
But a “wise” husband never lets one like this go.
“Well, technically, the latch is thrown
so the knob will not turn,
but the door is standing wide open”.
“Well, technically, one with one’s
head up that narrow passage,
means the same as an ostrich
burrowing its head in the sand.
But untechnically, I don’t think
the ostrich would agree.”
