A wife told her husband that it was not necessary for him to remember her birthday which fell on the following week.
Actually, deep down inside her she really meant :
"You’d better do or else …"
The husband knowing his wife too well, said,
“Oh, I do remember, darling.
What would you like to have for your birthday present?”
“Oh, I haven’t thought of it yet,” the wife said.
“I think anything with diamonds would be fine.”
For his wife’s birthday present, the husband gave her a pack of playing cards.
* Sometimes, we are not truthful with our words ... we say one thing but really mean another. We need to practice honest and truthful speech.
* A person of sensitivity and wisdom would be able to gear out what the words of another really mean and respond in a proper and wise way even when the words of the other are vague and confusing.
* Beware! A sly and cunning person can respond to another's request in devious ways ... ways that con you. Such persons are more concerned with their self-interests rather than a sincere and honest intention to help you.
