The Daily Joke

here I Sat on the Couch Naked:

Two weeks ago was my 44th birthday and I wasn’t feeling too hot that morning.
I went down to breakfast knowing my wife would be pleasant and say Happy Birthday and probably have a present for me.
She didn’t even say Good Morning, let alone any Happy Birthday.
I thought, Well, that’s wives for you.
The children will remember. The children came down to breakfast and didn’t say a word.

When I started to the office I was feeling pretty low and despondent. As I walked into my office, my secretary, Janet said, Good Morning, Boss, and Happy Birthday. I felt a little better. Someone had remembered.
I worked until noon, then Janet knocked on my door and said, You know it is such a beautiful day outside and it is your birthday, lets go to lunch, just you and me.
I said, By George, that’s the greatest thing Ive heard all day. Lets go. 

We went to lunch.
We didn’t go where we normally go. We went out into the country to a little private place. We had two martinis and enjoyed lunch tremendously. On the way back to the office, she said, you know, it is such a beautiful day; we don’t need to go back to the office, do we?
I said, No, I guess not.
She said, lets go to my apartment. 

After arriving at her apartment she said, Boss, if you don’t mind, I think Ill go into the bedroom and slip into something more comfortable.
Sure, I excitedly replied. She went into the bedroom and, in about six minutes she came out carrying a big birthday cake, followed by my wife, children and dozens of our friends.
They were all singing Happy Birthday and there I sat on the couch.......naked.
