Jack wakes up
with a huge hangover the night after a business function.
Cloudy-headed and in pain, he forces himself to open his eyes
and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to
a glass of water on the side table. Next to the aspirin and
water stands a single red rose! He sits up in bed and sees
his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. Jack
looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order,
spotlessly clean. He takes the aspirins, cringes as he turns
on the bathroom light and notices a post-in on the mirror:
"Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go
shopping - Love you!!"
He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast
and the morning newspaper.
His son is also at the table, eating. Sheepishly, Jack asks,
"Son...what happened last night?"
"Well, you came home after 3 am , drunk and out of your
mind. You broke the coffee table, puked in the hallway and
almost broke your nose when you ran into the bedroom door."
"Okay...so, why is everything in such perfect order,
so clean, I have a rose and breakfast is on the table waiting
His son replies, "Oh, THAT!...Mom dragged you to the
bedroom and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed......"Leave
me alone, b*tch, I'm married!".
Broken table - $200

Saying the right thing, at the right time... PRICELESS ! !
