A friend mentioned the other day that there are no more Golf Widows.

He was alluding to the fact that husbands who played golf hardly saw their wives because they were always out playing or at the club drinking with golf buddies.

But now, he said perhaps in revenge (even if we never played golf), we men have realised that we are the new SMS Widowers.

“What do you mean by that?” I asked.

“It’s the wives,” he blurted. “They’re constantly texting on their mobile phones. So they might be at home with their husbands but they’re not actually there. Their minds are somewhere else, with friends they’re constantly SMS-isng with!”

“And when they’re not texting,” I volunteered. “They’re probably emailing or on Facebook.”

“Yeah!” he said. “But I suppose that happens to wives too, if their husbands are constantly on the mobile or on the computer. But I think it’s mostly the wives that are constantly texting … they love networking, building friendships and keeping in touch. We men tend to not do that sort of thing.”

So anyway, if you find that you’re a SMS Widow or SMS Widower, it’s perhaps time for revenge, just jump out the window and play golf! 🙂
