Jack wakes up at home with a huge hangover he can't
believe. 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 up 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: "Honey, 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?"
"Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and out of
your mind. You broke some furniture, puked in the
hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the
"So, why is everything in such perfect order, so
clean, I have a rose, and 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, lady, I'm married!"
