Bill wakes up at home with a huge hangover he can’t believe.He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing hesees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on theside table. And, next to them, a single red rose. Bill sitsdown and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean andpressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is inperfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house.
He takes the aspirins,cringes when he sees a huge black eyestaring back at him in the bathroom mirror, and notices anote on the table: “Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I leftearly to go shopping– Loveyou!”
He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hotbreakfast and the morningnewspaper. His teenage son is also at the table, eating.
Bill asks, “Son…what happened last night?”
“Well, you came home about 3 A.M., drunk and out of yourmind. You broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, andgot that black eye when you ran into the door.”
“So, why is everything in such perfect order, so clean, Ihave a rose, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?”
His son replies, “Oh THAT!… Mom dragged you into thebedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, youscreamed, “Leave me alone, lady, I’m married!”
