You don't know how hard it was for me to leave that thing lying there. Every time I walked by, I would automatically start to bend down for it, then stop short, "He just knows that I will throw his garbage away. Won't he be surprised?!"

If he did, then he certainly was surprised to see that it hadn't magically disappeared. Now there's a man who knows how to keep his wife's thoughts on him all morning.
