Why females should avoid a girls night out after they are married

Why females should avoid a girls night out after they are married....

The other night I was invited out for a night with the 'girls.'
I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!'

Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home.

Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed 3 times.

Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times.

I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him.

(Even when totally smashed... 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals = 12 cuckoos = MIDNIGHT! - Brilliant eh?)

The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him ' MIDNIGHT'... he didn't seem p! ssed off in the least.

Whew, I got away with that one! Then he said 'We need a new cuckoo clock.'

When I asked him why, he said, 'Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said 'oh shit.' Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and
then tripped over the coffee table and farted.

Love the farting at the end.

PMSL! That's brilliant. You should be proud of your ingenuity (even if it did backfire in the end!).

Love it!!

Carlsberg don't make cuckoo clocks but if they did it would probably sound like yours!
