Jack wakes up at home with a huge hangover after the night of his office
> Christmas party. 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.
And, next to them, a single red rose! Jack sits down 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. So is the rest of the house.
He takes the aspirins, cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at
> him in the bathroom mirror, and notices
a note on the table, "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.
Jack asks, "Son...what happened last night."
> Jack son answers "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and out of
> mind. You broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and got that black eye
> when you ran into the door!"
Jack says, "So, why is everything in such perfect order, so clean, I have a
> red rose, and breakfast is on the table
waiting for me?"
> His son replies, "Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take
> your pants off,
you screamed," 'Leave me alone, lady, I'm married!' "
> Broken furniture - $85.26
