Mr. T told me this story when we started dating…

A couple had been married for 50 years.  Every day, the husband would make a sandwich for the wife. Whenever they were running low on bread, he would give her a sandwich made with the heels of the loaf and he would eat the inside slices.

One day, the woman turned to the man and said: “I’ve had enough! For fifty years I’ve cooked and cleaned and birthed your children. Yet, whenever we’re running low on bread, you ALWAYS give me the heel. Enough already!” 

The man turned to the woman with a bewildered expression, and told her: “But… For fifty years the heel has been my favorite piece.”
