So what did you do all day?

Sunday, November 27, 2011

One afternoon a man came home from work to find total mayhem in his house. His three children were outside, still in their P.J.'s, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers thrown all about the front yard. The door to his wife‚s car was open, as was the front door to the house. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess.

A lamp had been knocked over, and a throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, Breakfast food was spilled on the counter, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand lay piled up by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and other piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried that she might be ill, or worse!!

He found her lounging into the bedroom, still in her pajamas, reading a novel.

She smiled, looked up at him and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"

She again smiled and answered, "you know everyday when you come home from work and ask me what in the world did I do today?"

"Yes", he replied reluctantly.

She answered, "We'll, today I didn't do it!!"

    I love it. For years, I have asked my DH "What do you want for supper?" His answer, "I don't know, whatever you feel like fixing." He has been doing most of the cooking since I had my hip replacement and guess what? He asks me "What do you want for supper?" My answer, "I don't know, whatever you feel like fixing." Fair is fair.

    Great story and too true. For all you non believers, just try it yourself and see if it isn't so. Grin.

    Love it! :) I remember being a Stay at home Mom, and feeling frustrated by that question on occasion! Wish I had thought of this! LOL However, I would have had the job of cleaning it all up, so it wouldn't be worth it!

Thanks for the smile!
