Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
I’m not the easiest guy in the world to get along with. So when our anniversary
rolled around, I wanted my wife to know how much I appreciated her tolerating
me for the past 20 years. I ordered flowers and told the florist to enclose a card
that read, ‘Thanks for putting up with me so long.’
When my wife got the delivery, she called me at work.
“Just where do you think you’re going?” she asked.
“What do you mean?” I said.
She read the card aloud as the florist had written it:
“Thanks for putting up with me. So long.” 😳😁😎

In the events leading up to this scene the regularly-scheduled opponent to Apollo has to withdraw at the last minute and Philadelphia fight promoter Jergens (Thayer David) scrambles to find a suitable opponent. When none of the obvious choices are available, Apollo suggests giving a local underdog a shot.
