Last October, for her birthday, I bought my wife a Magnolia tree from the local nursery, but after only a few weeks the leaves shrivelled.
It appeared to be on its last legs.
My wife took some leaf samples and marched into the nursery to demand an explanation.
I stood back, expecting a technical explanation, which only my 'expert' wife could understand.
"I know exactly what's wrong with your magnolia," said the Manager.
"Good," said my wife. "What's it suffering from?"
"Autumn," he replied ... (I smirked to myself all the way home in the car!)
Well I thought it was funny.
