Reading into it
Moishe is talking to one of his friends.
“My wife Bettie will never have to work. All she needs to do is cook, clean, scrub, wash, iron and sew.”
His friend said “That’s nice to hear, I am sure she appreciates you”.
“Well, I am not so sure,” replies Moishe. “Bettie thinks I’m too nosy. Well, that’s what she wrote in her diary, anyway.”
