    :hello: FROM SPOUSE Hide & Collapse. :hello:

    A man and his spouse were living in forest. While man was throughout the day went in search of something and return home daily exhausted. Despite her repeated asking, he never disclosed what he was searching in forest.

    She had no big chores except prepare porridge for two and provide water to husband when he returns exhausted from forest for washing his hands and feet.

    One day on his return homewards, he saw a young lass, beautiful lady. Delighted, he asked her who was she & what brought her to the forest.

    She in response told him that since he did not return home in time she had come in search of him.

    Flabbergasted he asked her “who are you?. Why you are searching for me. I have never met you”.

    She answered him, “Look. Don’t be kidding. I am your spouse. I have become young accidentally”.

    “How is that possible?”

    “While making porridge, spatula broke and so I took that twig from loft and used it for stirring the hot simmering porridge which turned black. Scared of being scolded by you, I drank all of that and lo I turned young.”

    “Oh! That is the twig all these days, I was searching for. Hope you had preserved that twig carefully.”

    “Oh my God! I tossed it into fire while making porridge again for you.”

    Moral: share your secrets wisely!

    The moral is about the man who got his just desserts, for keeping a secret from his wife.
    He was obviously plotting to leave the old hag, and get himself a new, young, porridge maker. He deserves what he got. A bowl of new porridge, and a young porridge maker.

    That porridge lady is no Alexander Fleming.
    Alexander Fleming (1881–1955): Discoverer of penicillin
    The story of the discovery tells how Alex F. observed the resistance to bacterial growth in some of his petri dishes, and tracked it back to his "magic twig", which was a penicillin making fungus. Two other scientists found that this penicillin thing can be injected in people suffering from bacterial infections. Millions of lives were saved in WW-II.

    @Thyagarajan Sir,

    Some of the interesting facts and questions that came up are-

    1) Never keep secrets from spouses.
    2) If you are searching for something, inform/ask the spouse. Probably they know it's precise location.
    3) After hiding the magic wand in the loft, why did he go searching for it in the endless jungle? He should have searched for it in his house.
    4) When they weren't adivasis, saints, hunters or gatherers, why did he choose to live in a forest.
    His intelligence is debatable.
    5) Spoilt food to be consumed by the wife because he will scold!? He is unreasonable and has anger issues.
    5) Now the wife has many valid reasons to divorce him & seek better life in the city! ;)
