One day, a man comes home from work to find total mayhem at home.  The
kids were outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud and muck. 
There were empty food boxes and wrappers all around.  As he proceeded into
the house, he found an even bigger mess.  Dishes on the counter, dog food
spilled on the floor, a broken glass under the table, and a small pile of
sand by the back door.  The family room was strewn with toys and various
items of clothing, and a lamp had been knocked over. 

He headed up the stairs, stepping over toys, to look for his wife.  He was
becoming worried that she may be ill, or that something had happened to
her.  He found her in the bedroom, still in bed with her pajamas on,
reading a book. 

She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.  

He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"  

She again smiled and answered, "You know everyday when you come home from
work and ask me what I did today?" 

"Yes," was his reply.

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it!"
