this is hilarious, John. I came to this one because 5 is my lucky number, though i would not want to be a WIFE number five. About my poem you commented on recently, I had a very romantic guy in my young life that was a French Canadian who was only in town five days when I was a kid in high school and we parked in his car in front of my house. It was so romantic, it became the idea for all my romantic poems. I hope he remembers me and that one day we can meet again. Gosh, he was a dreamy looking guy!!
