After years of hiding the fact that the love is gone, the last child moved out of the house and Mom and Dad announced they were getting a divorce.
The kids were distraught and hired a marriage counselor as a last resort at keeping the parents together. The counselor worked for hours, trying all of his methods, but the couple still wouldn’t even talk to each other.
Finally, the counselor went over to a closet and brought out a beautiful upright Bass, and began to play. After a few moments, the couple started talking. They discovered that they’re not actually that far apart and decided to give their marriage another try. The kids were amazed and asked the counselor how he managed to do it. He replied, “I’ve never seen anyone who wouldn’t talk during a bass solo.”
