The Remedy

A man wakes up one morning feeling too ill to go to work. So he phones his boss to call in sick.

"I feel awful. I have a terrible headache, aching all over and I've been sick all night. So it's unlikely that I'll be in to work today."

"You won't believe this," says the boss, "but I felt exactly the same last week. I went home, made love to my wife and in two hours I felt much better."

After three hours the man phones back sounding much perkier than before.

"You were right, it really did work. I feel much better now," he explains. "Oh, and by the way, nice house!"
