Jack wakes up with a massive headache after attending his company’s Halloween Party. Jack is not normally a drinker, but the drinks did not taste like alcohol at all. I do not even remember how I got home from the party. As bad as he felt, he wondered if he had done something wrong.
Opening his eyes, the first thing that he sees is a couple of aspirin next to a glass of water on the side table. And, next to them, a single red rose. Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. he looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirin and cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror. Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror written in red with little hearts around it and a kiss mark from his wife in lipstick.
“Honey, breakfast is on the stove. I left early to get groceries to make you your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! – Jillian.
”He stumbles to the kitchen and, sure enough, there is hot breakfast, coffee, and the morning newspaper. His son was also at the table, eating. Jack asks, “Son… what happened after last night?”
“Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and out of your mind. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, and then you puked in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door.
Confused, he asked his son, “So, why is everything in such perfect order and so clean? I have a rose, breakfast is on the table waiting for me??”
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, I’m married!”
Broken coffee table: $239.99. Hot breakfast: $5.00. Two Aspirin: $.38. Saying the right thing at the right time… priceless!
