Excellent poem, Michael... thanks for the honest insight into the mind of the male. I've heard that women play a form of the same game... (wink) Warmest regards and respect, CJ

Michael, I found this narrative to be delightful, especially the ending.

Well, I wouldn't call you a pig.......hey, it sounds like you put alot of 'effort' into it. You have to get credit for that! I'm sure you're a wonderful husband to her now. Daughters are wonderful (I have 2 too!) Thanks for sharing this, it was very 'enlightening'. :) sincerely, Mary

If you are a Pig Michael, then all men are pigs, cus all men do this. I was amused by the fact that you ended up with this lovely woman of yours too. I love dishonest honesty in a man...it is so cute when you meet one that can't look you in the eye and lie. You know you are on to a good thing! Well I do. 10 from honest Tai, like it or no!
