On the second day, she had the removal men come
and collect her things.

On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful
dining room table by candle-light, put on some soft
music and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of

When she had finished, she went into each and
every room and
deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in
caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods!?

She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days.
