The story begins when one man phones to his wife at home and says:
-“Honey I have been asked to go fishing at a big lake up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We will be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I’ve been wanting, so would you please pack me enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and fishing box? We’re leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick up my things. Oh! And please pack my blue silk pajamas.”
The wife thinks that there is something suspicious but as every good wife she packs her husband’s clothes, fishing rod and the pajamas as well. After one week, he comes back home a little bit tired but otherwise looking good.
The wife says: “Welcome, Did you catch many fish?” And he replays:” Yes! Lots of walleye, some blue gill and a few pike. But why didn’t you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you to?”
Then the wife replies: “I did. They were in your fishing box.”
