THE GOOD WIFE
After a hellish week of business meetings in Detroit, she returned home to find her husband asleep on the couch in his underwear among a jumble of old newspapers, overflowing ashtrays, empty beer bottles, greasy pizza boxes and several unfamiliar pieces of women’s clothing. Her exhaustion was too great for anger so she just began to quietly sob. He awoke at the sound and seemed genuinely pleased to see her. Then noticing her tears, he consoled her with a hug. “It’s alright Dear”, he said. “I know you’re tired from your trip so you can clean up here in the morning”.
The next day, refreshed from nine hours of sleep, she cleaned the entire house and carried the trash out to the curb.. She had to use an extra four heavy-duty garbage bags for the body parts.
