crumpets

Keith: "The XX bakery has new management, and it's not as good as before. One of the three original founders died from a heart attack."

Me: "Oh, that's too bad."

Keith: "His name was on the lease so his wife or girlfriend kicked out the other two, and took it over."

Me: "That's terrible! Was she his wife or his girlfriend?"

Keith: "Both."

Me: "He was married and had a mistress?"

Keith: "Yes."

Me: "So which one took over the lease?"

Keith: "They did it together."

Me: "Wow. Well, I guess they had similar tastes."

Keith: "United by their grief and greed."

Me: "Like many a capitalistic venture."

Congratulations on resisting the urge to title this "crumpets & strumpets"... I wouldn`t have been able to.

I don't understand, why would the mistress be involved? She wouldn't have any legal claim to ownership, and it's hard to see that she and the ex-wife would be excited about working together.

If you don't love the puppy cam, I am afraid we cannot be married. Sorry.
