"Last month, a man placed a 911 call to his local police station and calmly reported to the police operator, 'My wife, Gertrude, is missing.'
The switchboard officer asked, 'Sir, how long has your wife been gone?'
The husband replied, 'I think about one month.'
Why did you wait so long to report it?' asked the policeman.
The husband replied, 'Well . . . Until yesterday, I thought it was just a dream.'"
