Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company's Christmas Party.
Jack is not normally a drinker, but the drinks didn't taste like alcohol at all. He didn't even remember how he got home from the party. As bad as he was feeling, he wondered if he did something wrong.
Jack had to force himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. And next to them he sees a single red rose. He's startled!
Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it's in perfect order and spotlessly clean.
As he walks around a bit confused, he realizes so is the rest of the house.
He takes the aspirins and staggers into his bathroom, cringing as he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror. Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror, written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his
wife in lipstick. It reads:
"Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to get groceries to make you your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! Love, Jillian"
He stumbles into the kitchen and sure enough, there is a hot breakfast, steaming hot coffee, and the morning newspaper. He sees his son eating at the table.
Jack cannot refrain himself, and just has to ask.
"Son. What happened last night?"
"Well," he replied, "You woke me up when you came home after 3 a.m. drunk out of your mind. You fell over the coffee table, breaking it. Then you threw up all over the hallway and got that black eye when you ran into the bedroom door."
Confused, Jack asked, "So, why is everything in such perfect order and so clean? I have a rose while breakfast is on the table waiting for me."
His son replies, "Oh, that! I don't know. All I know is that mom was furious, dragging you into the bedroom. When she tried to take your pants off, you screamed, "Leave me alone, I'm married!"
