a fun short crafty story

Here is a fun short story I came across when was I working on my rag dolly research:

A couple whom had been married for over 60 years, they share everything and kept no secrets from each other, expect for one....
One day, the wife became ill and went to the hospital.
The doctor pronounced her term.
Husband went back home and started clearing some of his wife belongings and came across a pretty shoe box on top of their closet.
As he opened the box, he discovered two crochted dolls and a stash of cash.
Bewildered, the husband brought the box to his wife's bedside.
The wife started to explain, ”When we were first married, my grandmother had told me that the secret in keeping a happy marriage is to not get into arguments. She told me no matter what, if I ever should get upside, I should keep calm and crochet a doll instead.”
The husband heard her story and was overjoyed, since there were only two dolls inside the pretty shoe box, that would meant after all these years, his wife was only mad at him twice.
He then asked her about the cash.
The wife replied, “Oh, those are the monies I made from selling my crochet dolls……”

Happy Crafting.... :D
