A sock joke…

A young couple excitedly got engaged.

However their wedding day drew near and they each grew apprehensive.

Both had a problem they hadn’t shared with anyone, not even each other….

The Groom-to-be, overcoming his fear, decided to ask his dad for advice.

“Dad,” he said, “I am really worried about the success of my marriage.”

His father replied, “Why is that, son?”

“I love her deeply,” he said, “but I have very smelly feet and I’m scared my fiance will be put off by them.”

“No problem,” said dad, “all you have to do is wash your feet as often as possible, and always wear socks, even to bed.”

Feeling brighter he was happy to put this plan into action.

The bride-to-be, also worried, went to her mum.

“Mum,” she said, “When I wake up in the morning my breath is truly awful.”

“Sweetie,” her mother consoled, “everyone has bad breath in the morning.”

“No Mum, mine is especially bad. I’m afraid that my husband-to-be won’t even want to sleep in the same room as me.”

Her mother said simply, “Try this. In the morning, get straight out of bed, and head for the kitchen and make breakfast. While your husband is busy eating, move on to the bathroom and brush your teeth. Remember don’t say a word until you’ve brushed your teeth.”

“Not even ‘Good morning’?” the daughter asked.

“Not a word,” her mother affirmed.

She thought that was worth a go.

The loving couple were finally married and with his sock wearing and her morning silence, they managed just fine for about six months…. Then shortly before dawn one morning, the husband wakes with a start to find that one of his socks had come off!!

He frantically searches the bed, waking his wife in the process. Without thinking, she asks, “What on earth are you doing?”

“Oh no!” he exclaims, “You’ve swallowed my sock!”
