Dear Jane, From a Disgruntled Husband

Dear Jane Austen,
Thanks a lot.  You have set the bar impossibly high for us 21st century guys.  My wife keeps gushing about, “Oh, Captain Wentworth’s letter.  It’s so romantic.  Why don’t you write me a letter like that?”  She’s even writing him a love letter! How is a regular guy supposed to compete?  She tells me, “You’re un Cubano.  You guys have romantic souls.  You all say so.  Just follow Wentworth’s template.”  Yeah, right.   You’re a woman!  You know what women want to hear!  I think I do pretty well, but, “You pierce my soul?”  C’mon!  I don’t stand a chance.  So thanks for everything, Jane. My wife will always be disappointed that she didn’t get that grand, romantic letter from me and it’s all your fault.
A disgruntled husband

  1. Lol. Sadly, this is probably true. But it's still hilarious! :)

  2. haha, love this! Especially because it is 100% true :)

  3. Nicely put! I'm sorry if Jane has set our standards to unrealistic heights.

  4. Lol! How hilarious but true!

  5. Oh my word! How delicious and creative! I love this.

  6. I used to love writing letters and always wanted a correspondent who crafted elegant prose. It didn't even need to be a love letter.

    Email has just about killed off any chance of that happening.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
