One afternoon a
man came home from work to find total mayhem in
his house. His three children were outside, still
in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty
food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the
front yard. The door of his wife's car was open,
as was the front door to the house.
to the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A
lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was
wadded against one wall. In the front room, the
TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the
family room was strewn with toys and various
items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled
the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the
counter, dog food was spilled on the floor, a
broken glass lay under the table, and a small
pile of sand was spread by the back door.
quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over the
toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his
wife. He was worried she may be ill, or that
something serious had happened. He found her
lounging in the bedroom, still curled in the bed
in her pajamas, reading a novel.
looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day
went. He looked at her bewildered and asked,
"What happened here today?"
again smiled and answered, "You know every
day when you come home from work and ask me what
in the world did I do today?"
was his incredulous reply.
answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."
