Match Day

When family came over for dinner on match day, a husband and wife face the usual conflict of which was more important – the football game on television or the dinner itself. To keep peace, the husband ate dinner with the rest of the family, and even lingered for some pleasant after-dinner conversation before retiring to the family room to turn on the TV.
Several minutes later, his wife came downstairs and graciously even bought a cold drink for him. She smiled, kissed him on the cheek and asked what the score was. He told her it was the beginning of the second half and that the score was still 0-0.

“See?” she said, continuing to smile, “You didn’t miss a thing.”
