A young man and woman got married. At the time of their marriage,
the husband noticed his wife carried a decently sized metal
box and shoved it up at the top of their closet.
Curious as he was, the wife told him to never to
look in it no matter what the circumstances.
Over the years, he saw that metal box in the closet,
but never peered into it for the sake of his wife.
One day, though, the wife had a stroke and
was rushed to the hospital. As the husband
sat grieving at home, he thought of the box,
snatched it up, and sped to the hospital
where his wife remained with her death coming soon.
The husband bolted to her hospital room and pleaded
and begged her to allow him to open the box by her side.
“Well” she said,
“I suppose now would be the right time.”
The husband unlatched the hook and peered inside.
On one side sat two crocheted dolls, and on the other,
to his surprise, sat one million dollars! “Honey,
before we got married, my mother gave me this box
and told me that whenever I got mad at you,
I should go to the bedroom and crotchet a doll,”
said the wife. The husband was thrilled and thankful.
He absolutely couldn’t believe his wife had only been
mad at him two times! “That is amazing!” said the
husband to his wife. “Honey, I’m grateful beyond belief you’ve
only been mad at me twice, but how on this earth did you
manage to get one million dollars?”
“Oh, honey” said the wife, “That’s the money I got from selling the dolls.”
