  • My Wife is Expecting

    A young private sought permission from his Commanding Officer to leave camp the following weekend.

    "You see," he explained, "my wife's expecting."

    "Oh..." said the Officer, "I understand. Go ahead and tell your wife that I wish her luck."

    The following week the same soldier was back again with the same explanation, "My wife's expecting."

    The Officer looked surprised.

    "Still expecting?" he said, "Well, well, my boy, you must be pretty bothered. Of course you can have the weekend off."

    When the same soldier appeared again the third week, however, the Officer lost his temper.

    "Don't tell me your wife is still expecting!" he bellowed.

    "Yes sir!" said the soldier resolutely, "She's still expecting."

    "What in heaven is she expecting?" cried the Officer.

    "Me," said the soldier simply.
  • Pass It On

    My husband, Michael, and I were at a restaurant with his boss, a rather stern older man. When Michael began a tale, which I was sure he had told before, I gave him a kick under the table. There was no response, so I gave him another poke. Still the story went on.

    Suddenly he stopped, grinned and said, "Oh, but I've told you this one before, haven't I?"

    We all chuckled and changed the subject. Later, on the dance floor, I asked my husband why it had taken him so long to get my message.

    "What do you mean?" he replied. "I cut the story off as soon as you kicked me."

    "But I kicked you twice and it still took you awhile to stop!"

    Suddenly we realized what had happened. Sheepishly we returned to our table. The boss smiled and said, "Don't worry. After the second one I figured it wasn't for me, so I passed it along!"
  • Great Understanding

    Relationship is easy when spouses know each other. Here are 2 classic examples:

    1) A husband comes home after attending a club meeting.

    He tells his wife, "Dear, there was a drinking competition after meeting today."

    His wife spontaneously, "Who got the second position?"

    2) A wife tells her husband, "Dear, there was a letter for you with `Private and Confidential" written on the envelope.

    The husband casually asks, "What was written inside?"

    Great understanding of each other!
