Please excuse my post for today, it’s not original but I just can’t let this short story past without sharing, it’s sort of related to my niche anyway. Every wife (okay let me not include other wives without their consent), let me rephrase - I as a wife sometimes thinks of the worst while mi esposo is out for a drink. It’s not about trust or the lack thereof, but you cannot ever trust alcohol, can you? Not to mention peer pressure which I think is scarier. Things like boys night out are unavoidable, there’s nothing I can do but to pray for his safety and to keep him sober enough to hold his values intact. I hope that this story is not just a fiction but a daily practice of every good family man, wasted or otherwise.
A husband wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces his eyes and first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table. He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all cleaned and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order spotless and clean. The rest of the house is in equally good shape. He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table.
“Honey, breakfast is on the table. I left early to go grocery shopping. Love You!”
He is totally shocked by the loving note. He goes to the kitchen and there is a hot breakfast and morning newspaper ready for him. His son is eating at the table. He asks, “Son, what happened last night?”
His son says, “Well, you came home around 3 a.m. drunk, puked in the hall and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door”.
Confused, the man asks, “So why is everything in order and so clean? Why is there breakfast on the table waiting for me? I should expect to have a big quarrel with your mom!”
His son replies, “Oh, that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom and when she tried to take your clothes and shoes off, you said, “Lady Leave Me Alone! I’m Married!”
