Having the last word
Since men hold the majority of political offices in the U.S., enact the laws that govern our lives, make more money than women do. and are physically stronger than their female counterparts, the good Lord above has given ladies the ability to get in the last word, making it an even playing field, so to speak.
And it drives men crazy. We are the best at winning an argument, leaving the men drop-jawed because they cannot think of a reply.
Example: A couple drove down the road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, “relatives of yours?”
“Yep,” the wife replied. “In-laws.”
Enter the Holy Bible: A man and his wife were having an argument over who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said “you should do it because you get up first. The man said, “you are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it because that’s your job.”
Wife replies: “you should do it because it is in the Bible that man should do the coffee.” Husband replies, I can’t believe that. “Show me” he says, fetching the Bible.
She turns a few pages and at the top of one of the pages it says…HEBREWS!
But the prize winner of them all is…
After a bitter argument, a couple went into “the silent treatment mode.” They went to bed without speaking to each other. Suddenly the man had a disturbing thought. He was to meet his friends at 9 a.m. on the golf course and was afraid he would oversleep. But he didn’t want to be the first to break the silence, so he wrote a note and pinned it to his wife’s pillow. The note said, “wake me at 5 a.m.”
The next morning he woke up and looked at the clock. It read 9 a.m. Too late to get to the golf course. Why hadn’t his wife woke him like he asked her to?
He looked over at her pillow and saw a note pinned to it. He grabbed the note and read. “It’s 5 a.m. Time to get up.”
Butterscotch Apple Cake Recipe
3 green apples, peeled and chopped into small pieces
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1⁄2 cup white granulated sugar
2 1⁄2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1⁄2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 TBS cinnamon
1⁄2 cup butterscotch topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, add butter, brown sugar, and white sugar; whisk well to combine. Add eggs and whisk to combine; set aside.
In another bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; whisk to combine.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring to combine, but do not overmix. Add apples last and fold to combine. Batter will be thick, but that’s normal.
Spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray, and pour batter into the pan; spread evenly on the top.
Place in the center of the oven, and bake for 40-45 minutes or until cooked through (test with toothpick, but 40 minutes was perfect for mine).
Remove from oven, cool in pan for 20 minutes, then remove and let cool on wire rack for 15-20 minutes longer. Drizzle butterscotch topping over the top of the cake, slice to serve.
Makes one bundt cake.
