What Do You Do All Day?

A man came home from work and found his three
children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in
the mud, with empty food boxes and 20 wrappers
strewn all around the front yard.

The door of his wife's car was open, and so the
front door to the house and there was no sign of the
dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even
bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the
throw rug was wadded against one wall.

In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a
cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with
toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast
food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was
open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor a
broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile
of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys
and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He
was worried she might be ill, or that
something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made
its way out the bathroom door.

As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap
and more toys strewn over the floor.

Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste
had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still
curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a

She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day

He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What
happened here today?'

She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day
when you come home from work and you ask me what in
the world I do all day?'

'Yes,' was his incredulous reply.

She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'
