    Pull the wool over your eyes

    Tell him he's dreaming

    I frequently tell my wife to fetch me some coffee. I don't know is she doesn't understand the word or if there's something else wrong, but it doesn't seem to work. In an attempt to make my needs known, I might even go the extra mile to tell her to trot on over to the coffee pot and fetch me some coffee. Still no good. I've tried everything; bells, whistles, and even a clicker.
