Denise, his new wife, was standing there by the bench watching him with curiosity.
After a long period of silence she finally said, “Honey, I’ve just been thinking. Now that we are married, maybe it’s time you quit spending so much of your time out here in your garage. You probably ought to consider selling all your welding equipment, along with your gun collection and that stupid vintage Harley”.
John suddenly got a horrified look on his face.
Denise said, “Darling, what’s wrong?”
John replied, “For a minute there, you were starting to sound like my ex-wife”.
“Ex-wife?”, Denise replied, then as she realized the significance she screamed at him, “YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE MARRIED BEFORE!”
John replied: “I wasn’t”.
