A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should I do? His mother has an idea. Why dont you send her flowers, and on the card invite her to your apartment for a home cooked meal? He thought this was a great strategy, and a week later the woman came to dinner. His mother called the next day to see how things had gone. I was humiliated, he groaned. She insisted on washing the dishes. Whats wrong with that? asked his mother. We hadnt started eating yet.
