A man called his wife and explained, “Honey, I’ve been invited to go fishing in China with my boss for a week.
It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to secure a promotion. Could you please pack enough clothes for a week, set out my fishing rod and box? We’ll be leaving directly from the office, and I’ll swing by the house to pick up my things. Oh, and don’t forget to pack my new blue silk pajamas!”
Despite sensing something suspicious in her husband’s story, the wife, being a good spouse, followed his instructions diligently.
After a week, the husband returned home, appearing somewhat tired but pleased with a job well done. Eager to hear about his weekend, the wife inquired about the fishing trip, asking if he had caught any fish and how the overall experience was.
The husband responded, “Yes, lots of salmon, bluegill, and a few swordfish. But why didn’t you pack my blue silk pajamas?”
To this, the wife cleverly replied, “I did… they’re in your fishing box.”
