A woman was in bed with her lover when she heard her husband opening the front door.
“Hurry,” she said, “stand in the corner, and don’t move.”
She then quickly rubbed baby oil all over his body and dusted him with some talcum powder.
“Don’t move a muscle until I tell you to,” she whispered. “Just pretend you’re a statue.”
“What’s this, honey?” the husband inquired as he entered the room.
“Oh… it’s just a statue,” she replied nonchalantly. “The Smiths bought one for their bedroom, and I liked it so much I got one for us too.”
No more was said about the statue, not even later when they went to sleep. Around two in the morning the husband got out of bed, went to the kitchen, and returned a while later with a sandwich and a glass of milk.
“Here,” he said to the statue, “eat something. I stood like an idiot at the Smith’s for three days, and nobody offered me so much as a glass of water!”
