I see my wife in a new outfit for the first time, and she really looks great, so:
Me: In that outfit, you are easily the most beautiful woman I have ever known!
She: [with a look on her face like I just punched her in the gut] So… just the women you’ve known? Other women are much prettier?
Me: [short pause] What I meant was, you are the most beautiful women I have ever known, could ever know, or could conceivably come into existence.
She: [looking like her puppy died] But only in this outfit? Otherwise I’m just mediocre?
Me: I love you very, very much!
She: [laughing and kissing me] First law of holes, honey!
My wife, who loves me very much, sometimes likes to play with my mind like a kitten with a puff ball.
First Law of Holes: When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
