A Short Love Story

A man and a woman who had never met before, and were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a trans-continental train. Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly... he in the upper bunk and she in the lower. At 1:00 AM the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying:

 

"Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold."

 

"I have a better idea," she replied . "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married."

 

"Wow! That's a great idea!" he exclaimed.

 

"Good," she replied. "Get your own damn blanket."

 

After a brief moment of silence, he farted.

 

The End
