The Wife of the Parasite and the Wife of the Man were sitting outside enjoying a drink of lemonade when a serious discussion was started.
The Wife of The Man stated that her oven was hot when she used it.
The Wife of The Parasite gasped in disbelief! "You cannot say such things!"
The Wife of The Man said "Why not? It is the truth."
The Wife of The Parasite replied "Truth or not, it just is not appropriate to talk about these things in public."
The Wife of The Man "I am very confused..am I supposed to pretend and ignore the fact that the oven is hot when it obviously is?"
The Wife of the Parasite "I don't care how you do it, just it is not ok to talk about such things in public, what if someone overheard you saying that?"
The Wife of the Man "But everything tells me that it is hot, the steam, the heat on my face and it cooks the food. When I touch it with my hand, it is very hot."
The Wife of the Parasite "Is there no hope for you?"
The Moral for all those that did not catch it? Sometimes people feel better when they hide behind opinions, which are warm rather than facing facts, which are cold.
