Stacey and Five Golden Rings

-->
Stacey loved her husband's "cheesiness."  He had wooed her with chocolates and candlelight dinners. He won her over the day she lost her job. Jerry picked her up riding a white horse, wearing a tee-shirt that read "Shining Armor." But over time, Jerry had lost his touch. Instead of flowers, he gave her coupons for domestic chores. And while it was a gift to pick up the dog poop, Stacey still wanted a tennis bracelet. The competition with her mother-in-law (who on her wedding day also showed up in white) did not help. This Christmas, when Jerry bought gifts themed to a popular Christmas Carol, Stacey lost it. When Jerry's mother opened her gift, Stacey blurted out, "Are you fucking kidding me?! Five golden rings?! And I get all these fucking birds!” Stacey would never worry about stepping in dog shit at home again.

I particularly like how much the MIL wearing white conveys with so few words. Well done.
