I had a dream last night that all the laundry was done.
This reminds me of a story my father in law told me of the funny incident at Universal Studios.
There was a stunt show about to start and rushed the family to hurry and run to get the best seats. Grabbing my mother in laws hand he ran while she struggled to run with him.
All of a sudden a Charlie Chaplin actor nearby sees this and runs up and sneaks his own hand while simultaneously releasing her hand. Very sneaky. He was a pro. My father in law never even noticed.
So, he’s running hard now dragging Charlie Chaplin. Charlie is playing the role walking like a duck while holding his hat. Unbeknownst to my father in law everyone is laughing it up including my husband and his brother.
When they finally get to the show, he turns around and startled like he saw a ghost. Charlie Chaplin also pretended to be startled. Everybody nearby is just busting a gut. The absolute funniest memory of my father in law.
A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, 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 into 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 walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, 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.”
