A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should he do?
His mother had an idea: Why don’t you send her flowers, and on the card invite her to your place for a home-cooked meal?
He thought this was a great strategy and arranged a date for a week later. His mother called the day after the big date to see how things had gone.
The evening was a disaster, he moaned.
Why, didn’t she come over? asked his mother.
Oh, she came over, but she refused to cook.
