GOLF QUOTE / JOKE
I don’t exaggerate – I just remember big. – Chi Chi Rodriquez
Dave and his buddies were hanging out and got to talking about planning a 5-day golf trip. Unfortunately, he had to tell them that he couldn't go because his wife wouldn't let him. After a lot of teasing and name calling, Dave headed home totally frustrated. The following week when Dave's buddies arrived at the golf resort, they were shocked to see Dave sitting in the lobby, drinking a beer, holding his putter! "How did you talk your wife into letting you go, Dave?" "I didn't have to," Dave replied. "Last night I slumped down in my chair with a beer to drown my sorrows. Then, my wife sneaked up behind me, covered my eyes and said, 'Surprise.' When I peeled her hands back, she was standing there in a beautiful see-through negligee and said, 'Carry me into the bedroom and tie me to the bed, and you can do whatever you want'......SO HERE I AM !"
