“I bet you don’t know what day this is,” said the wife to her
husband as he made his way out the front door.
The husband was perplexed, but was always a quick thinker: “Of
course I do, my dear. How could I forget!?” With that, he turned and
rushed to catch the bus for work.
At 10 AM, the doorbell rang and when the woman opened the door, she
was handed a box containing a dozen long stemmed red roses.
At 1 PM, a foil wrapped, two pound box of her favorite chocolates
arrived. Later, a boutique delivered a designer dress. The woman
couldn’t wait for her husband to come home.
The husband was smug when he returned from work, satisfied that he
had recovered what could have been a very bad situation.
His wife was indeed surprised: “First the flowers, then the
chocolates and then the dress!” she exclaimed, “I’ve never had a more
wonderful Groundhog Day in my life!”
