She said, "I never have that problem. Every day I get up early. Every night I come home late. I sleep like a baby." He said, "So? What's that got to do with my problem?" She said, "So, you're not tired enough when you go to bed. You haven't worked hard enough during the day. Would you like to hear my solution?" He said, "Uh, okay."
