While enjoying their evening coughtails, the wife asks her husband, in very seductive voice,
"Have you ever seen Twenty Dollars all crumpled up?"
"No, I haven’t," said her husband.
She gave him a sexy little smile, unbuttoned the top 3 buttons of her blouse and slowly reached down into the cleavage created by a soft, silky push-up bra, and pulled out a crumpled Twenty Dollar bill.
He took the crumpled Twenty Dollar bill from her and smiled approvingly.
She then asked him, "Have you ever seen Fifty Dollars all crumpled up?" "Uh...no, I haven't," he said, with an anxious tone in his voice.
She gave him another sexy little smile, pulled up her skirt and seductively reached into her panties..... and pulled out a crumpled Fifty Dollar bill.
He took the crumpled Fifty Dollar bill and started breathing a little quicker with anticipation.
"Now," she said, "have you ever seen Fifty Thousand Dollars all crumpled up?"
He said, "God, No!," desperately trying to contain his excitement.
