EDITOR: ROLEY FOLEY The other night I was invited out for a boys night. I told The Mrs that I would be home by midnight, ‘I promise!’ Well, the hours passed and the beers 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 Mrs 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 confl ict. (Even when totally smashed… 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals = 12 cuckoos MIDNIGHT!) The next morning my Mrs asked me what time I got in, I told him ‘MIDNIGHT’… she didn’t seem cross in the slightest... Whew, I got away with that one! Then she said ‘We need a new cuckoo clock.’ When I asked him why, she said, ‘Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times then said ‘oh sh*t.’ Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, laughed, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and backfi red. Have a great month!
