A wife and her husband were having a dinner party for some important guests. The wife was very excited about this and wanted everything to be perfect. At the very last minute, she realized that she didn't have any snails for the dinner party, so she asked her husband to run down to the beach with the bucket to gather some snails. Very grudgingly he agreed.

He took the bucket, walked out the door, down the steps, and out to the beach. As he was collecting the snails, he noticed a beautiful woman strolling alongside the water just a little further down the beach. He kept thinking to himself, "Wouldn't it be great if she would even just come down and talk to me?" He went back to gathering the snails.

All of a sudden he looked up, and the beautiful woman was standing right over him. They started talking and she invited him back to her place.

They ended up spending the night together. At seven o'clock the next

morning he woke up and exclaimed, "Oh no! My wife's dinner party!" He

gathered all his clothes, put them on real fast, grabbed his bucket, and

ran out the door. He ran down the beach all the way to his apartment. He

ran up the stairs of his apartment. He was in such a hurry that when he

got to the top of the stairs, he dropped the bucket of snails.

There were snails all down the stairs. The door opened just then, with

his very angry wife standing in the doorway, wondering where he's been

all this time. He looked at the snails all down the steps, then he

looked at her, then back at the snails, and said, "Come on guys, we're

almost there!"
There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate." -Charles Dickens
