Smile: blush
.She was outside pulling weeds on a hot summer day when her husband walked up and asked her what they were having for dinner.
Irritated by the thought of him sitting in the air-conditioned house while she laboured away on the weeds, she snapped, "I can't believe you're asking me about supper right now! Pretend I am out of town, go inside and make dinner yourself!"
So he went back in the house and fixed himself a big steak, potatoes, garlic bread and a tall beer.
His wife walked in just about the time he was finishing up and asked, "Where's my dinner?"
"Huh? I thought you were out of town?"
