Some encouragement for World Cup widows (and widowers)

I'm getting carried with this French business now.

Anyway, according to Le Figaro, "Women for a football-free Spain" has launched a campaign to ban the World Cup, noting "They want to be able to watch their favorite serials on television. They want evenings together with their menfolk. And they want them to be available, attentive and sober"....Among possible retaliatory measures they suggest: "every match watched in a bar will be compensated by breakfast in bed with their wives. Showered, shaved and sober". And not forgetting the supreme sanction: a monopoly on the remote control for women".


An ex of mine is currently a World Cup widow, her husband having decamped to Germany for the duration, and missing their first wedding anniversary in the process. Showing an extraordinary degree of grace she has forgiven him because he booked the holiday before they were married.
