Dress Maketh A Man

A police officer, though scheduled for all-night duty at the station, was relieved of duty early and arrived home four hours ahead of schedule, at 2 in the morning. Not wanting to wake his wife, he undressed in the dark, crept into the bedroom and started to climb into bed.

Just then, his wife sleepily sat up and said, “Mike, dearest, would you go down to the all-night drug store on the next block and get me some aspirin? I’ve got a splitting headache.”

“Certainly, honey,” he said, and feeling his way across the dark room, he got dressed and walked over to the drug store.

As he arrived, the pharmacist looked up in surprise, “Say,” said the druggist, “I know you – aren’t you a Fire-Officer – Fenwick, right?”

“Yeah, so?” said the Officer.

“Well, congratulations, then, on your promotion!”

“What?”

“Oh, I don’t miss a thing, Do I? Looks good on you, though it could be a size smaller, I thought.

“Eh?”

“The Fire-Chief’s dress…,” pointed the Druggist.
