No matter how much we think we have your life in control, we are bound to come across a few bumps on the road. A man was faced with a similar muddle and his way of dealing with that problem brought him a few other bigger problems. So here’s the story: 

A middle aged married man had an affair with an Italian woman for many years. Then one day, she told him that she was pregnant. Worried about his wife finding out about the affair, the man requested his lover to flee back to Italy to give birth to the baby. He was so desperate that he offered to take care of all the expense and promised to send funds to raise the child until he/she turns 18. The woman was reluctant but accepted the offer. She had one question though. 

She asked how he would know that the baby had been born? The man said, “After giving birth, send me a postcard with the word ‘Spaghetti’ and I will understand that the baby is born“. The woman agreed and flew back to Italy. For the next 9 months the man and woman had no contact, then one day, there was a postcard waiting for him at home. As soon as he entered the house, his wife said, “Honey, a very strange postcard came in the mail for you.” The man wasn’t sure what it was. He opened the postcard, read it and fainted. Here’s what was written in the postcard: 

“Spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti. Three with meat balls, two without them. Please send more sauce”.
