Soon after Julie and I first married, I went into work one Monday morning. As I was pouring my first cup of coffee of the day, I encountered a woman co-worker in the breakroom.
ME: “How was your weekend?”
WOMAN: “Good. Yours?”
ME: “Good! My wife left and she stocked up the freezer with my favorite frozen dinners. Wasn’t that nice of her?”
WOMAN (shocked): “Your w-w-w-w-w-ife left? I’m so sorry!”
ME: the light dawns “She’s visiting her family in Ohio. She’s coming back a week from today.”
