A man phones home to his wife and says, “Honey I have been asked to go fishing at a big lake up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We`ll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I `ve been wanting, so would you please pack me enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and fishing box?
We are leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick up my things. Oh! And please pack my new blue silk pyjamas.”
The wife thinks that this sounds a little fishy but being a good wife, she does exactly what her husband asked. The following weekend he comes home a little tired but otherwise looking good.
The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish. He says, ” yes! Lots of walleye, some blue gill and a few pike. But why didn`t you pack my new blue silk pyjamas like I asked you to?”
The wife replies: ” I did. They were in your fishing box.”
