Today, one of my fav Vinglers (@AkashBhojraj) shared a really cute story of love and being a couple. It made me think of another one my mom used to share with me. It's pretty cute and silly but I hope you like it!
"An old man and old woman have been married for forty years.
For their entire marriage, the man had always given his wife the heel (or the end piece) of every bread loaf. Whether it was a sandwich, garlic bread, or just bread fresh from the oven, she always got the heel.
"Why can't I ever have the soft middle of the bread?" she'd think and get angry about. "Why does he always keep the best part for himself?"
After 40 years, one day she couldn't stand it any more. As he served her a sandwich made from store-bought bread, there was the heel as the top of her sandwich.
"Why do you always do this?" she cried. "I hate the heel. I like the soft part! I've only eaten it all these years to make you happy. Why can't you ever take the heel to show you love me?!"
"I've always given it to you," the man said softly, "because it's my favorite part."
