    An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day
    trying to get a stay. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor
    had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed. As soon as he
    walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about, 'What
    time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been?'
    'Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it'. And on and on
    and on.
    Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar
    ritual, he went
    and poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for
    a long hot
    soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable
    sarcastic remarks as
    he drug himself up the stairs.
    While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife
    answered and wa s told that her husband's client, James Wright, had been
    granted a stay of execution after all. Wright would not be hanged
    tonight.
    Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had,
    she decided to go upstairs and give him the good news. As she opened the
    bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband, bent over
    naked, drying his legs and feet.
    'They're not hanging Wright tonight,' she said. To which
    he whirled around and screamed,

    'FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, DON'T YOU EVER STOP?!'


    Thank you.
