How to Preserve a Husband
Be careful in your selection; Do not choose too young. Once selected, give your entire thought to preparation for domestic use.
Do not pickle or put in hot water. This makes them sour, hard and sometimes bitter.
Even poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and good by garnishing them with patience, sweetening them with love, and seasoning to taste with kisses and smiles.
Cover them in sweet charity, shower them with generosity, and keep them warm with a steady fire of devotion.
To keep them fresh and light-hearted, sprinkle daily with Sense of Humor.
Most importantly, wrap them tightly in prayer.
Thus prepared, they will keep forever.
