A husband and his wife decide to go out for dinner at a restaurant.
When they arrive, the husband can’t take his eyes off a drunken lady swigging her gin at a nearby table.
Curious, his wife asks, “Do you know that drunken mess?”
“I’m afraid so,” the husband replies. “She’s my ex-wife. She took to drinking right after we divorced seven years ago and I hear she hasn’t been sober since.”
“My God!” the wife says. “Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?”
