"I see they have found those boys in the cave" I said.
"How did they get in there in the first place?" she asked.
"Their coach took them in", I told her.
"They went in by bus?"
"No Love".
True story, and she will kill me if she finds I have told you.

Don't worry, Bob. You're safe so long as you just keep referring to her as 'she' or 'her'. :D

Bob, if you tell her this one, she might not feel so bad. Years ago, my buddy and I returned from a weekend fishing trip. As I was dropping him off at his house, his wife came out and asked us how the trip went. He told her that we had a great time, the fishing was good and we even got a couple of "double-headers". Around here, that's a common expression describing when both people in the boat hook a fish at the same time and manage to land them both.
"Wow! That's amazing! That's the craziest thing I've ever heard."
"Well, ya. It was a lot of fun but it's not really that uncommon when the fishing is good."
She stood there in silence for a few minutes as we unloaded our gear...
"I just can't believe it! You guys catch a two-headed fish and just act like it's no big deal at all!"
