An elderly couple celebrated their golden anniversary after fifty years of marriage.
While eating breakfast together, the woman thought, “For fifty years I’ve always been considerate to my husband and have always given him the crusty top of the breakfast roll. Today I want finally to enjoy this delicacy for myself”
She spread the top part with butter and gave the other part to her husband. Contrary to her expectations, he was very pleased, kissed her hand and said, “My darling, you’ve just given me the greatest joy of the day. For over fifty years I haven’t eaten the bottom part of the roll, which is the part I like best. I always thought you should have it because you like it so much.”
Perhaps, that was the secret of fifty happy years together: consideration for the other!
