On the first day, she sadly packed her belongingsinto boxes, crates and suitcases.
On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.
On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining-room table, by candle-light; she put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar,and a bottle of spring-water.
When she'd finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimps dipped in caviar into the hollow center of the curtain rods.
She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.
On the fourth day, the husband came back withhis new girlfriend, and at first all was bliss.
Then, slowly, the house began to smell.
They tried everything; cleaning, mopping, and airing-out the place.
Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned.
Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought into set off gas canisters, during which time the two had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting. Nothing worked!
People stopped coming over to visit.
Repairmen refused to work in the house.
The maid quit.
Finally, they couldn't take the stench any longer, and decided they had to move, but a month later - even though they'd cut their price in half - they couldn't find a buyer for such a stinky house.
Word got out, and eventually even the local Estate Agents refused to return their calls.
Finally, unable to wait any longer for a purchaser, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.
Then the ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for having the house.
Knowing she could have no idea how bad the smell really was, he agreed on a price that was only 1/10 th of what the house had been worth ... but only if she would sign the papers that very day.
She agreed, and within two hours his lawyers delivered the completed paperwork.
A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home ......

Souskluitjies Lekker Kluitjies om op jou kookvleis of
potjies te sit. Maak seker jy het genoeg sous in jou pot
dat dit nie droog kook of jou vleis aanbrand nie.
250 ml (1 k) koekmeel
7 ml (1½ t) bakpoeier
2 ml (½ t) sout
60 g botter or margarien, in blokkies gesny
10 ml (2 t) droë pietersielie
60-80 ml (¼-1⁄3 k) melk Sif die meel, bakpoeier en
sout saam. Vryf die botter met die
vingerpunte in tot die mengsel soos broodkrummels lyk. Voeg die pietersielie by en
net genoeg melk om ’n sagte deeg te vorm. Skep eetlepels vol deeg in
die vleispot en bedek. Laat minstens 15 minute
prut sonder om die deksel op te lig tot die kluitjies gaar is. (’n Mes moet
skoon uit die middel kom.) Resep van Huisgenoot/Stork
