Marital Compromise


Rob walked into the office just like it was any other normal day at work. The gasp on Wendy’s lips suggested otherwise. The entire left side of his head was bald.

“What happened to you?” cried Wendy. Carter and Brody heard the commotion and came to investigate.

“I wondered if anyone would notice,” mused Rob.

“Your hair is braided on the right half of your head and there’s nothing anywhere else,” observed Brody.

“Did you lose a bet?” asked Carter.

“Or did you just lose your mind?” asked Wendy.

“No,” said Rob. “My wife wanted me to keep my hair long but I wanted to shave it. Compromise is essential in a good marriage, so I did.”

“That’s awesome!” exclaimed Brody.

“What does your wife think?” asked Wendy.

“It’s funny. She didn’t seem to notice at first. When she finally did she took a picture and posted it on Instagram.”

Wendy shook her head in disgust. “I can’t believe you did that.”

“How long have you been married?” asked Carter.

“Thirty-two years.”

“You’re my hero,” declared Brody.

“Do you offer marriage counselling?” asked Carter.

Wendy grumbled on the way back to her office. “Men are weird.”
