The first wife was looking surprisingly at the second wife. She was very anxious to hear the details of her relation with her ex husband. She was telling herself that she must be exaggerating, is she talking about the same man she's been married to?! How could he be that nice to her while she hated every second of her life with him during the last year of their marriage... She was confused, a bit jealous too. She listened, with a fake smile on her face. For the first time in 3 years, a thought came to her, could she be the wrong one? Is it true that she didn't try hard enough to make their marriage work out as he had been telling her. How could this be? she wanted to succeed, but she did not. Would it have worked out if...... she was brought back from her thoughts with a big laugh from the second wife. She didn't notice what was said and was that funny, but she smiled a complementary smile. She was paying much effort to hide her jealousy, but all of a sudden, she found herself saying: "Don't you just hate it when he squeezes the toothpaste tube right in its middle?! This has always driven me crazy!" With a sure smile, the second wife replied: "I know, i hate it too. I just buy him a separate tube."
She heard it, and smiled, and she finally realized why her marriage didn't work out.
