CARTOON ANSWER: HIS WIFE FOUND OUT THAT HER NEW RING WAS A CHEAP IMITATION, AND NOW HE’D – – –
TER CA PPE HIY = PAY THE PRICE
Good Morning, Everyone! 💍 BLING IT ON… 💍
🎶 I’ve heard of affairs that are strictly platonic…But DIAMONDS are a girl’s best friend…And I think affairs that you must keep the liasonic are better bets…If little girls get big baguettes…Time rolls on and youth is gone and you can’t straighten up when you bend…But stiff back or stiff knees you stand straight at Tiffany’s…DIAMONDS are a girls best friend…🎶 – “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” – Marilyn Monroe 1953
💍 I think the sweetest woman when faced with this dilemma,
Could easily a TIGER be, to find out that her gem…er…
Is nothing more than imitation glass…just some cheap paste…
She’d have to wonder how much money did this guy just waste?
Financial crunches HAPPEN, and I’m sure no CRANK she’d be,
If he told her about it, that he was short money…
Instead he chose deceitfulness…and now can you blame she…
For being so upset and giving him a HOMILY?
Women in love would take a jewel smaller if ‘real ice’…
But giving her a fake?…uh uh…He deserves to PAY THE PRICE...💍
As we RING in the second day of our work week, we find that we have another new word…HOMILY. Our other three, tried and true…but with anagrams anew…and with HAPPEN going back as far as January 2012. That’s amazing, don’t you think?…Off the CHAIN as the kids would say…But it was our new entry, HOMILY that prompted a discourse this morning. Stumping almost every one of the Early Birds, it definitely came in as the word that they SPENT the most time on, in fact two of them said that it didn’t even RING a bell…
Our cartoon today takes us into the living room of HAL and his wife, who I’ll call GEMMA. A third character’s in attendance, and we learn her name is BARB. Barb is quick with the barb, asking Hal why he didn’t KARAT-nough to give Gemma a ring that wasn’t a knockoff. Obviously the one who uncovered the problem at HAND, her telling Gemma that her ring was a fake started this whole Diamond-in-the-Rough ride…And understandably upset, Gemma wants an explanation. So what does Hal have to say about giving her this shamROCK? That it’s just temporary…until the jeweler gets the real one in…COAL, Hal, COAL…I guess he was just under too much PRESSURE…But now that every FACETS come to light? Hal’s just gonna have to…PAY THE PRICE! Good one, David…you’re a real GEM!
Eye candy? We see Hal wearing slippers, obviously relaxing before Barb took her CHEAP shot. Dressed in a white Lacoste polo and blue jacquard print pants, he looks like he just came in from a round of golf, or maybe an afternoon at the Baseball DIAMOND…Except for the Jumble puzzle in the paper that he’s reading, the only real eye catcher is that RING. Looking closely? It’s huge…talk about a ROCK...So this brings up a question or two...Hal and Gemma do look a bit older…so if we’re talking an Engagement ring, just how long is it taking this store to give Hal a RING letting him know THE REAL THING came along? And If they’ve been married for a while, and it’s an Anniversary gift, wouldn’t Gemma have some idea as to how much money Hal had to spend? Did she really think a Rock of that size would come CHEAP? …And just who is Barb anyway? I don’t know, something here just doesn’t ADD UP. But then again, I’m easily distracted by shiny objects, so don’t MINE me…Bottom line? This may all boil down to it being a MOOD RING… An ex of mine gave me one of those once, and he was surprised at how quickly we saw it work. When I was in a good mood, it turned green. And when I was in a bad mood it left a big red mark on his forehead…the next time he bought me a DIAMOND! Moral of the story? If you KARAT-nough to give the very best? Your love will always RING true! So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And ROCK on! 💍🙋🏻
