Robin's 2 Cents

Three couples went out for a romantic Valentine's Dinner

The first couple had been married a few months. He lovingly says to her, “will you pass the sugar, Sugar?”

The second couple have been married a year. He romantically gazes into her eyes and says, “will you pass the honey, Honey?”

The third couple have been married a long time (perhaps too long). He makes no eye contact and says, “will you pass the tea, Bag?”

Happy Valentine's everyone. May you all be the sugar or honey and not the bag!
