Opportunity of a Lifetime

Published on Sun 07 November 1999

A man phones home and tells his wife, "I have a chance to go fishing for a week. It is the opportunity of a lifetime. We leave right away. So, if you could, please pack my clothes, my fishing equipment and especially my blue silk pyjamas. I will be home in an hour to pick them up."

He goes home in a hurry, grabs everything and rushes off.

A week later he returns. His wife asks, "Did you have a good trip, dear?"

He responds, "Oh yes, great! The fishing was fantastic! You would not believe the size of one that I caught. The only thing is that you forgot to pack my blue silk pyjamas."

His wife smiles and says, "Oh no, I did not. I put them in your tackle box!"
