why women lie

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river,her thimble fell into the river.

When she cried out, the Lord appearedand asked, 'Why are you crying?'

The seamstress replied that herthimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help herhusband in making a living for their family.

The Lord dipped His handinto the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires.'Is this your thimble?' the Lord asked

The seamstress replied, 'No.'The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a golden thimblestudded with rubies.'Is this your thimble?' the Lord asked.

Again, the The Lord reacheddown again and came up with a leather thimble.'Is this your thimble ?' the Lord asked.

The seamstress replied, 'Yes'The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all threethimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband alongthe riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappearedunder the water.

When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and askedher, 'Why are you crying?' 'Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into theriver!'

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney.'Is this your husband?' the Lord asked.'Yes,' cried the seamstress.

The Lord was furious. 'You lied! That isan untruth!'

The seamstress replied, 'Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is amisunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to George Clooney, youwould have come up with Brad Pitt.Then if I said 'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband.Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three. Lord, I'mnot in the best of health and would not be able to take care of allthree husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to George Clooney.

And so the Lord let her keep him.

The moral of this story is:Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and inthe best interest of others. That's our story, and we're sticking toit.
