My Husband Confesses His Sole Regret for My Exit....

    ( Important note: My husband HATED that I became a JW. Hated everything about it.)


    He is the one who every morning makes our coffee in his beat-up metal perculator. And this morning shuffling around the kitchen with the fresh perked coffee pot in his hand exclaimed "There is one thing I will say that I really miss about you leaving the Witnesses"

    --and I will say I was shocked to hear this. My mind drew a complete blank as to what this fervent and thoughtful hater of the Organization would MISS about me being a JW... so I waited to hear this revelation:

    "In the past I could always find one of those GOD-DAMNED Awakes or Watchtowers on the table to set the coffee pot on!"

    lol...see, they are good for something.

    It's good to pour over those magazines.

    minimus, Terry--

    Yep--I am still smiling about it-

    Poor guy--22 years of having a JW for a -(cough)-partner. He hasn't said much about it since I left--until this morning's coffee.

    I DID use to pour over those mags.

    We are both glad I finally got OUT!

    Happy Saturday morning to you!

    It would be interesting to do a study as to the protective effectiveness of the new 16-page magazines for use as trivets vs. the old 32-pagers.

    Several years ago our CO was talking about how important it is to really talk to people on your magazine route. He told a story about a sister who'd been leaving magazines with a man for years and one day she asked him what he thought of the magazines and he says, "they're great! They fit the bottom of my bird cage perfectly!"

    Well now the magazines are too thin to protect the table much!

    Could never stand seeing them on my coffee table. Better used as emergency toilet paper!

    I think he loves you.
