What do you do all day?

I know many of you have read this story before, but I still think its a classic, truly great. This is just to bring a smile to you ladies out there and if any guys happen to read this, well, just tuck it away for future reference.

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still In their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog. 
Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a
 cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. 
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. 
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas,
 reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?" She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all
 day?" "Yes," was his incredulous reply. She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."

Oh...my goodness...MEMORIES....LOTS of MEMORIES...Hmmm...does painting a company trailor bring back any memories? Hmmm...(that is just for starters...) (smile)

Hey, I was never "officially" involved in that!

Mother Smith said...

You know...I don't know if anyone has ever really "owned" up to who actually "lead" the paint hoodlums...(smile)

Serene Designs said...

Oh please! It was all Josh and Caleb!

That is a great story.... I just heard a story from a friend. She said her neighbors thought her son was left home alone for the weekend (though he wasn't), so they thought they'd check their house. They walked right in to look for her son. The neighbor's son came out of the house and said, "Now I'm even more worried because no one is here, and it looks like the house has been ransacked!"

Yeah, the ransacking was just the normal kid messes! How embarrassing. :)

Oh wow, that's some nosey neighbors! It would have been pretty upset.
And if people were to walk right into myself with no one home, I'm sure we would give that same impression most of the time. =)
