When Gail got home from work Tuesday night, I told her that I had seen a story on the 5 p.m. news which claimed that married women, who had sex three times a week, lived longer and looked younger than those that didn’t. “With their husbands?” Gail asked.
The next day, I was in Modell’s buying swim goggles. I picked out the ones I wanted and brought them up to the young lady at the cash register. “Do you need anything else?” she asked.
“Not that I can think of,” I answered.
“We have socks on sale this week—four pair for only $10.”
“No thanks. If I bring more socks home, it will be grounds for divorce.” (I already have two full drawers dedicated to socks—one for the white ones; one for the dark ones.)
As the cashier was about to complete the transaction, I reconsidered my answer. “Wait! Where did you say those socks were?”
