Drawing the wrong conclusion

Here's part of a conversation from earlier tonight.

Me: That green [office] chair is on its last legs.
Wife: That's hardly a surprise. We've had it since before we were married.
Me: Really?
Wife: Yes, we got it when we bought our first computer [in 1996, a few months before our marriage.]
Me: Wow. I guess it's a good sign that our marriage is outlasting our furniture.
Conclusion: The key to lasting marriage is cheap furniture!

AS, I don't know why you deleted that comment. The observation about the couch was spot-on.

I thought it was cheap booze!

Cheap booze is the key to getting laid in the first place. It's optional for marrital purposes.

Since I don't have much more than one drink a month (except during the holidays, when I may have as many as five glasses of wine or champagne during December), I simply must be in love with the big lummox.

I won't speak for him though.

Also, since I do drink so very rarely, I can afford to drink the expensive stuff!
