Mitzi’s husband Hershel was late coming home again.
Fed up, she wrote him a note saying, “I’ve had it! I’ve left you. Don’t bother coming after me.”
Mitzi placed the note on his dresser, then hid under the bed to see his reaction.
Some time later, Hershel came home. She heard him rummage the fridge, walk up the stairs and enter their bedroom.
She watched him go over to the dresser and pick up the note.
After a few minutes, he wrote something on the back of her note. Then he called someone on his cell.
“She finally did it. She left me… ‘Bout time, right? Darling, from now it’s you and me. Put on that slinky dress and meet me at the Waldorf. It’s gonna be a night to remember, and breakfast in bed! …I love you too. Can’t wait.”
Hershel grabbed his keys and trotted down the stairs. Mitzi heard his car drive off as she emerged from beneath the bed, furious and sobbing.
Wiping her tears, she grabbed the note to see what he wrote.
“I saw your feet. We’re out of ice cream. Back in ten minutes.”
