A typical married couple was lying in bed one night. The wife had curled up ready to go to sleep and the husband put his bed lamp on to read a book. As he was reading, he would periodically reach over to his wife and fondle her "kitty".
He did this a few times but only for a very short time each time. He would then stop and resume reading his book.
The wife gradually became aroused with this and thought that her husband was seeking some response as encouragement before going any further.
She got up and started stripping in front of him. The husband was confused and asked. "What are you doing taking your clothes off?
The wife replied, "You were playing with my kitty. I thought it was foreplay to stimulate making love with you tonight."
The husband said, "No, not at all."
The wife then asked, "Well, what the hell were you doing then?"
The husband replied, "I was just wetting my fingers so I could turn the pages in my book."
