Husband: Oh say, honey, I really coulda sworn I heard a man’s voice in here.

Wife: Oh. Why, that’s IMPOSSIBLE! I’m here all by my lonesome! [ she chuckles nervously ]

Husband: Well… I guess I must have imagined it. I think I’ll have me a cold beer. [ he heads to the fridge, as his wife follows nervously ] Boy, what a day!
