What Do You Do All Day?

A man came home from work and found his three children 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 and there was no sign of the dog. Proceeding into 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
In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was
spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, 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.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more
piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she
might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out
the bathroom door.
As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more
toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap
and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up
in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at
him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her
bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?" She again
smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home
from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?"
"Yes," was his incredulous reply.
She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."
