Robin’s 2¢:

A man calls home to his wife and says, “Honey, I’ve been invited to fly to Canada with my boss and several of his friends to go fishing for the long weekend.

“This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I’ve been wanting, so could you please pack enough clothes for a three-day weekend.

“And also, would you get out my rod and tackle box from the attic? And pack my new navy blue silk pajamas.”

The wife thinks this sounds a bit odd but, being the good wife, she does exactly what her husband asked.

Following  the long weekend, he returns home a little tired but otherwise, looking good. The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish.

“Yes! Lots of walleyes, some bass, and a few pike,” he replied.

“But why didn’t you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you to do?” he added.

“I did,” the wife replied. “They’re in your tackle box.”

Never try to outsmart a woman!
