A couple was invited to a family / neighbourhood masked fancy dress Halloween
party. The wife got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party
alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some paracetamol and go to bed, there was no need for his night to be spoiled by her not going. So he took his costume and away he went. The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, woke up feeling a lot better, and, as it was still
early, decided to go to the party. Given that her husband didn't know what her costume was, she thought she'd have some fun by watching him, to see how he acted when she was not around. She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dancefloor, dancing with every nice looking lady he could and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there. His wife went up to him and being a rather seductive mare herself, he left his dancing partner high and dry and devoted his time to the newbie that had just arrived. She let him go as far as he wished, naturally, since he was her husband.
After some more drinks he finally he whispered a little proposition in her
ear and she agreed. They went outside and had a quickie in the back garden. The plan of the party was that everyone was to be unmasked at midnight, so she quietly slipped away and headed home. She put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make up for his outrageous behaviour. She was sitting up reading when he came in, so she asked what kind of time he had. He
said, "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there." Then she asked, "Did you dance much?" He replied, "I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill and some other guys, we went into the spare room and played poker all evening." Then she said with unashamed sarcasm, "you must have looked really silly
wearing that costume playing poker all night!" And the husband replied "actually, I gave my costume to my Dad, he said he
had a crackin' time .... "
