A man calls home to his wife and says, “Honey I have been asked to go fishing at a big lake up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends.
We’ll be gone for a week.
This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I’ve been wanting.
Would you please pack me enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and tackle box.
We’re leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick my things up.
Oh! Please pack my new blue silk pajamas.”
The wife thinks this sounds a little fishy but being a good wife that she is, she does exactly what her husband asked.
The following weekend he comes home a little tired but otherwise looking good.
The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish.
He says, “Yes! Lot’s of Walleye, some Bluegill, and a few Pike. But why didn’t you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you to do?”
The wife replied, “I did, they were in your tackle box.”
