Excited at his Return

One day Little Johnny was playing in his room when his Dad came up to talk to him. Johnny’s Dad explained to Johnny that he and Mommy were getting a divorce.

“Why Daddy, why?” Johnny asked, confused.

“Well,” explained Johnny’s Dad, “Your mother and I are no longer in love.”

Even more confused, Johnny asks, “What does being in love mean?”

“Well Johnny,” replied Dad, “let me give you an example. A Father is coming home from work, and his wife is as anxious and excited to meet him as he is when he gets home. So they both embrace and kiss at the door, right when they meet. That’s love, but Mommy and me have lost that.”

“But Daddy, I see mommy getting excited lots of times right when you come home,” Explained Johnny, “That means she must still be in love with you.”

“I don’t understand Johnny,” asked Johnny’s Dad, “Mommy gets excited?”

“Well, sometimes when Mommys still sleeping in the bed with the postman and you pull in to the driveway, I can hear her wake up and shout at the top of her lungs, ‘Oh my god, my husband’s home! My husband’s home!'”
