Bet you didn't know I was a Mormon. It's true. I have three wives...
When I got home from work yesterday I tossed all the empty beer and wine bottles that were cluttering up the garage into the back of the car, so I would remember to take them in today.

Me: It's all the empty bottles in the back.
V: Well, you should take those back someday!
F: Yeah, it's REALLY LOUD!!
Me: Yes, dears.
