OF US TWO, ONE LIKES TO SHOP AT ESTATE SALES

OF  US  TWO,  ONE  LIKES  TO  SHOP  AT  ESTATE  SALES

Dr. James J. S. Johnson

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.   (1st Peter 3:7)

BEING DRAGGED TO ESTATE SALES (BY MY WIFE)

How quickly my energy fails

When ‘pressed to go to estate sales,

So “we” shop near and far

(While I sit in the car)

Guess I’m not much for estate sales.

COMMENTARY:    See 1st Peter 3:7 (“likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [each one of you his own wife] according to knowledge …”).   Going to estate sales, or garage sales, or shopping malls, or warehouse sales, etc., etc., is not my idea of having fun — but my wife often enjoys that kind of shopping.  Sometimes I am “needed” to carry heavy purchases to the car.  (On the other hand, I have some habits that my wife tolerates, despite her reduced level of enthusiasm for those habits.)  But part of knowing my wife, and dwelling with her, involves going to estate sales (sometimes), etc. — even so, I routinely take a book to read, plus paper and pen, just in case I think up a limerick (like this one), or I just take a nap.

[ This limerick, with its commentary, first appeared, almost 2 years ago, as a blogpost on RockDoveBlog, at:  https://rockdoveblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/28/of-us-two-one-like-to-shop-at-estate-sales/  . ]
