After years of searching
For inner peace
For true euphoria
I have finally found the answer
A little bottle that holds the secret
The magic potion that will bring me eternal bliss
I pop open the lid
And add a generous helping to my husbands plate
I wait as he savours each bite
“There’s something new in there”
“There sure is, honey”
“Hmmm… what is that taste”
“You’ll never believe what it is”
“I don’t feel so good…”
“You’ll never guess”
“WHAT DID YOU PUT IN MY FOOD?”
“Some celery, carrots, onions and about half a bottle of rat poison”
I lean back enjoying the silence
What a wonderful evening this turned out to be

He must have been some piece of work for her to do that. Thanks for sharing.
I’m assuming he was haha.
Yikes…I would be sorry for your spouse 😉 Might want to consider not getting married.😉
He might want to consider a prenup and will 😜😂
prenup suggesting that if he die from unnatural causes 😉 Though you do know nowadays rat poison would show up in toxicology reports …
Love how dark that was!
Here I was expecting the answer to inner peace, lol. Nice ending, I didn’t see it coming!
Technically, I would argue that you did get somewhat of an answer lol 😆
… Beware of serial killers? 😬
Wowww!! Loved the disclaimer though!
Oh.. that’s so good. My husband now thinks I’m a crazy person for randomly bursting into laughter. He has no idea! 😆
Don’t you let him see your browser history 😂😂
He’s my tech guy.. He sees everything. 😅😂
Ummm… you may be in some trouble 😂
Story of my life. 🤣
Ah, haven’t we all had this dream?!! So much simpler and cleaner than divorce. I’d rather be a widow, how about you? (JK of course 😉!)
Will she get away with it? Did she commit the perfect crime? Only time will tell.
I wonder who her next victim will be…
Thank you 😊
You’re welcome 😊
Haha, I can’t help imagining. I have to say I’ve met several women who have tried and are still trying to use cooking and food to regulate their husbands’ behavior. And it is true. An unhappy chef is not going to produce a nice family dinner. So be nice to the chef. Otherwise…
Haha same here. You always need to be extra careful about how you behave with the person who makes your food.
What a twist! So dark… Good writing.
Thank you so much!
Poor hubby!😂😂 A deep beginning ending with a comical conclusion. Wow! You very intellectually played our minds.
Haha thank you so much! ☺😂
I don’t know if I’m odd cause this post made my morning.
When I read, “The Secret to Inner Peace” I must admit I sat up straighter.
Talk about a plot twist.
The disclaimer made me laugh.😅
Haha I’m glad you enjoyed it so much ☺ I was just in a goofy mood when I wrote it 😂
Thanks so much ☺
