On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband & asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed.

This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes & other incidentals that she needed.

Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer
was going through a process of corporate downsizing, & he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, & therefore, they were financially ruined.

Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of s teady deposits & interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 million, & informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank.

She explained that for the more than three decades she had "charged" him for sex, these holdings had multiplied & these were the results of her savings & investments.

Faced with evidence of cash & investments worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice & blurted out, "If I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!"

That's when she shot him.

You know, sometimes, men just don't know when to keep their mouths shut.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
