A man bragged to his friends that he had finally met the woman of his dreams. “What should I do next?” he asked them.
“Invite her over for a home-cooked meal,” they told their friend.

“Didn’t you invite her over for a home-cooked meal?”
“Yes,” he answered. “But when she arrived, she refused to cook it.”
