The skinny on a happy marriage

You have a wife with diabetes. She must watch her sugar intake.
In this you must be an ally.
But she also has a sweet tooth. She enjoys a treat.
In this you want to be a pal.
So, what’s a guy to do to pad his resume as a Husband of the Year candidate?
I can answer this in two words.
A “skinny shake” is something I discovered on the menu at the Blue Ribbon Dairy Ice Cream Parlor in West Pittston. It’s a milk shake made with low-fat milk and, if you wish, sugar-free ice cream.
My wife likes the strawberry.
And she likes me every time I show up with one. Which, during this summer of record-breaking heat, has been quite often.
Happy wife …
Well, you know how that goes.
