My husband and I used to promote our business by dropping
advertising pamphlets house-to-house.
We usually walked together, once in a while splitting up and meeting again a few blocks down the road.
One morning, however ,we seemed to have lost each other. I stood on a corner for some time, and decided to track down my husband by following his pamphlets deleveries.
After looking into four or five letter boxes, I was met by a police officer who had obviousley been observing my actions.
Embarrassed, I approached him and blurted, “ Well, you see, I’m looking for my husband.”
He raised an eyebrow and said
“Does he usually hide in letter boxes ?”
