Maureen says goodbye to her husband Melvin, who is driving to town to attend a scheduled lodge meeting.
Maureen pours herself a glass of Merlot, switches on the TV and parks herself on the sofa. Suddenly she hears Melvin coming back into the house, not long after he had left.
She says, “Hon, I thought you were going to your lodge meeting?”
“It was postponed,” replies Melvin. “The wife of the Grand Exalted Invincible Supreme Potentate wouldn’t let him attend tonight.”
