A WIFE who is very bored of hearing the same anecdote yet again is lying in wait to ruin it at just the right moment.
Mary Fisher who knows all of her husband John’s anecdotes word-for-word is currently laughing along so as not to give away her plans to destroy it.
Husband John said: “Mary loves the time I went mountain biking with my German pen friend. You can tell because she laughs so much.”
Mary Fisher said: “I might just say the punch line and watch his face drop or interrupt at the final moment with a needless question, I’m not yet sure.
“Now I must wait and laugh like a hapless buffoon hiding my venom like the anecdote assassin I have become.
“If all goes well he will get annoyed, his voice will go quite high, he might even try and tell me off in front of the guests, I can barely wait.
“But I must protest innocence because I will do this again. I will do this many, many times.”
