Mr. X's out of town. When he called me on Saturday and asked if I had a good day, I teased him, telling him that I went shopping and couldn't find any shoes or sweaters that I liked, but I found and bought a very expensive birthday present.
"uh, oh," he laughed, "you bought a car? No, No. I got it, you signed for a house."
"Uh man! You just ruined my joke." I groaned, "I got snow tires."
When Mr. X shared this story with a co-worker, the co-worker didn't think it was funny at all, "Dude, my wife left me penniless at age 44." Ouch.
