Robin’s 2¢:
A man was talking to his buddy at work one morning.
He told his friend how he and his wife had a terrible fight the night before. His friend then asked him what happened next.
“Well, she came crawling to me on her hands and knees,” replied the man.
“Wow, what did she say?” asked his buddy.
“She said, ‘Come out from under that bed and fight like a man,’” the man answered.
