Her husband was not home after work at his usual hour, and his wife was fuming, as the clock ticked later and later.
She was by this time a little worried, and debated whether to call in a missing person report to the police.
Finally, about 3am, she heard a noise at the front door.
She got out of bed, and as she stood at the top of the stairs, there was her husband, drunk as a skunk, trying to navigate the stairs.
“Do you realize what time it is,” she shouted down the stairs at him.
He answered, “Don’t get excited, I’m late because I bought something for the house.”
Immediately her attitude changed, and as she ran down the stairs to meet him halfway, she said, “What did you buy for the house, dear?”
His answer was, “A round of drinks!”
