Silence is Golden

The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home
and were giving each other the silent treatment.
Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him
at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
' Please wake me at 5:00 AM. ' He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight Furious, he was about to go andsee why his wife
hadn't wakened him,
when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, ' It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.. '

This one is......

I would have got an alarm clock instead of writing a note, if I didn't already have one...then the first note would never have been written, and the beat goes on.

wasn't in the male arsenal anyway. And I agree about the alarm clock...the louder the better. Wink

They'll wake you every morning when it's feeding time, once they know when you are supposed to get up.

Does this sound familiar

Our cats know Sunday. It's "bacon" day for them.

My old tom that died this year at age 15 used to do attack runs when he wanted to get me up. He knew I'd push him away or slap at him in my sleep, so he learned to get on the night table and wait to be sure he had a good line of run, then hit the bed and deliberately land and run down me, hopefully scaring me awake, while he quickly was gone and made his getaway out of the room. I do miss him.

Another cat likes to nuzzle my wife's face in effort to get her up.
