I cannot sugarcoat this, the life you are destined for. It is not fair, but then life never is. Child, girls tend to get the short
End of the stick. What can I tell you? I am just an old widow, but maybe you should remember to do the bidding
Of your husband. Be sure to do your wifely duties, that might keep him faithful. Cook him three square meals a day,
And always look your best when he comes around. If you play your cards right there might be some sort of
Silver lining down the long road. The young woman listened respectfully to her old granny's words, nodded in all the right
Places, and patted the woman's gnarled hand. "I can't sugarcoat this Granny, and I mean no disrespect, but screw that."
