The Starving Husband

This variant on an old story is by Cynthia MacGregor.

A woman, who was on a perennial diet, starved her husband right along with herself, till he complained to his pastor that he couldn’t get his wife to serve him a decent meal and he was growing positively malnourished.

“I can’t get her to listen to reason. Maybe you can get somewhere with her,” the hubby complained.

So the pastor counselled the ever-dieting woman, who at last saw the error of her ways.

“What shall I do to make amends?” she asked her spiritual counselor.

He told her, “Just repent and thin no more.”
