A conversation between a husband and a wife.
Husband arrives home after work. Husband looks for wife.
“Honey? I’m home. Where are you?” – Husband
Husband finds wife on hands and knees in living room.
“What are you doing?” – Husband
“The dog threw up again. We just had the carpet cleaned and she threw up on it. I’m cleaning the mess up.” – Wife
“Oh. I’m sorry. She must have liked the smell of clean carpet.” – Husband
Wife wrinkles brow and looks at husband.
“I’m sure Rita never has to clean up dog barf on the carpet.” – Wife
“Rita? Who is Rita?” – Husband
“Rita Wilson…Tom Hanks wife.” – Wife
“Why are you talking about Rita Wilson. You don’t know her.” – Husband
“She and Tom were in the news recently and they sure looked happy. Rita always looks happy. She doesn’t look like she cleans up dog puke from a carpet. I bet she has a whole crew of people who clean messy things for her.” – Wife
“True. I doubt she has done any cleaning for years. Her husband is a big movie star who makes the big bucks.” – Husband
“Yeah. No cleaning. Must be nice. Bet she doesn’t have to cook dinner either. No cooking or cleaning…now that’s the life.” – Wife
“Come on. Things are so bad. Aside from the dog throw up we have a good life. We have great kids.” – Husband
“Rita and Tom have great kids.” – Wife
“Being a movie star’s wife must be a lot of pressure. You wouldn’t want that would you?” – Husband
“Being in the movie business isn’t all glamor you know. Tom is probably away from his family all the time. Bet Rita wishes she had him home every night like you do with me.” – Husband (Big Smile)
“Yeah…I guess so.” – Wife
“I sure don’t envy Tom. Living in the public eye must be hard. No privacy. No siree. I like my life the way it is.”- Husband
“The ice maker in the fridge is broken. There was water all over the kitchen floor today. Oh and the our bathroom shower drain is clogged.” – Wife
“What? Home repairs never end.” – Husband
“I bet Tom never has to repair a broken ice maker and snake the drain before dinner.” – Wife
