A couple was approaching their 50th wedding anniversary. The husband
was looking around the house to find something to give his wife for
their golden wedding anniversary. She told him that "her closet was
off limits", to which he said "fine".
Well, he had looked everywhere, but couldn't find a thing he thought
she'd like. So, he decided to go ahead and look in his wifes closet,
Upon inspection, he noted two shoeboxes. He took the lid off one of
them and found two eggs...like what you'd break open and fry or scramble
up for breakfast. He thought "what in the world??".
He opened the second box, and it was chock full of money...$1500 to
be exact!! He reasoned "I'm going to get to the bottom of this".
When his wife got home, he confronted her with what he found, and
asked "OK, honey...what's the big idea?".
She confessed that every time she had been unfaithful to him in their
50 years of marriage, that she put an egg in the box.
Her husband didn't mind that at all...twice unfaithful in 50 years.
But, when he asked her to explain all the money, she replied "Every
time I got a dozen eggs, I sold them for a dollar!!".
