To tell the truth

"This medication will help you relax but it's truth serum so be careful what you say," noted the anesthesiologist with a grin as he was getting me set up for the epidural. "I'll be back in a few minutes when it takes effect."

My wife was in the pre-op room with me.

I figured I would speak. "I want you to know that I have never been unfaithful to you."

"Thanks for letting me know. I was really worried about that!" I remember my wife telling me just prior to when I thought I fell off to sleep."

After the surgery and back up in my room I remembered the conversation. I laughed when rehashing the details with my wife.

"Is that all you remember?" she asked.

"Yes, was there more?"

"Before you went off to sleep you also told me that you didn't think our marriage could last if your mother moved in with us and that you sometimes pretend not to hear Dwight (our poodle) ringing the bell on the door (yes...he is trained to ring a bell with his nose whenever he wants to go outside)."

We both laughed.

I'm glad it wasn't any worse than that!
