Saving Wives [by Katy]

For three weeks, Josh and Katy blogsit.

On Days of Our Lives, husbands are ALWAYS saving their wives’ lives. For example, in a recent story line, Jack has saved his wife Jennifer’s life by pulling her from the edge of a cliff: a literal cliffhanger, if you will. She was especially heavy, too, being nine months pregnant with their second child and all.

It’s been a difficult pregnancy — plus Jennifer thought Jack was dead until, oh, I don’t know, very recently — so emotions were understandably running high:

It was gripping!

Here in Augusta, Georgia we have a restaurant chain for people like Jack. It’s called Wife Saver’s Chicken and Seafood. See?

The thing I don’t get is this. Soap operas aren’t real, or so Josh tells me everyday. So who eats at Wife Saver? Who is the wife being saved? I don’t get it.

  1. Being from Augusta, GA, I have many childhood memories of trips to Wifesavers, to pick up dinner. As am adult, I now wonder just what they’re “saving wives” from. A beating if dinner isn’t ready when the man of the house gets home?

    Who knows?

  2. WifeSaver! Oh I remember this place. I too lived in Augusta for five years as a child. The fried chicken, mac and cheese, turnip greens and the homemade banana pudding – oh the banana pudding! Trust me – you should go try some.

    They are saving the wives from all the hard work and hours in the kitchen preparing dinner (well, I dont know who does that anymore, but theyve been around a long time!)

  3. And it’s a good thing there’s always a little branch to hang on to or another ledge off those cliffs for all those clumsy people who don’t notice they’re a step away from a very steep cliff. I’m hooked on Days, even though I wish I wasn’t.
