A great story you appreciate but which your dad may not….

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still
in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers
strewn all around the front yard.
The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and
there was no sign of the dog Proceeding In to the entry, he found an even
bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded
against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon
channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of
clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was
spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled
on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand
was spread by the back door.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of
clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that
something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as
it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet
towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet
paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed
in her pyjamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked
how his day went.
He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’
She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from
work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?’
Yes,’ was his incredulous reply.
She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it.’
