A husband wrote the following letter for his wife and left it on the
dining room table.
To my dear wife,
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being
54 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I
value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope
that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending
the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel.
Please don't be upset - I shall be back home before midnight.
When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter
on the dining room table.
My Dear Husband,

54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that

I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the
Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students, who is also the
assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary,
is also 18 years old.
As a successful business man who has an excellent knowledge of Maths,
you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with
one small difference. 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes
Therefore, I will not be back home until sometime tomorrow.
