There was an older lady and a man sitting on their deck. They were chilling with a beer (him) and a glass of wine (her). They were happy.

They sat for a while.

The man turned, as the lady said “I love you. We have been together for so long. You have supported me through thick and thin. You are my best friend. I know I can rely on you.”

The man said to the woman, “Is that you talking, or the wine?”

The woman said, “It’s me talking… to the wine.”


With thanks to Kate Hammond. I wish I could find the original cartoon.
