I am deeply indebted to my mate Nick Gibsone for this touching 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 one am, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying,
“Ma’am, I’m sorry to bother you, but would you mind reaching into the closet to get me another blanket? I’m awfully cold.”
“I have a better idea,” she replied with a twinkle in her eye.
“Just for tonight, let’s pretend that we’re married.”
His eyebrows went up and he smiled, “That’s a great idea!”
“Good,” she replied. “Get your own bloody blanket.”
After a moment of silence, he loudly farted.
