The Husband Joke

 

Joke May 2014

A woman wakes up to find her husband isn’t next to her in bed. She wanders into the baby’s room and there he is, looking down into the crib where the newborn is sleeping. She sees various expressions pass across his face: amazement, wonder, puzzlement.  Tears spring to her eyes. This is everything she ever dreamt of, a home, a baby, a husband who is loving to her and adoring to their child.

She leans her head on his shoulder. “A penny for your thoughts,” she says.

He is silent for a minute, and then he speaks. “I can’t believe,” he says, “that this crib cost three hundred and twenty dollars.”
