Elderly People?

Post by Amadeus »

Elderly People

There were these two elderly people living
In a Florida mobile home park. He was a widower
And she a widow. They had known one another for
A number of years.
One evening there was a community supper in the
Big activity center. These two were at the same
Table, across from one another. As the meal went
On, he made a few admiring glances at her and
Finally gathered up his courage to ask her,
"Will you marry me?" After about six seconds of careful
Consideration, she answered. "Yes, Yes, I will."
The meal ended and with a few more pleasant exchanges,
They went to their respective places. Next morning,
He was troubled. "Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?"
He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not
Recall. Not even a faint memory.
With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her.
First, he explained to her that he didn't remember as well
As he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past.
As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her,
"When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes'
Or did you say 'No'?"
He was delighted to hear her say, "Why, I said, 'Yes, yes
I will' and I meant it with all my heart."
Then she continued, "And I am so glad that you called,
Because I couldn't remember who had asked me."

When I first read this I didn't catch the part that they had known each other for a number of years (I was thinking they just met) - that would have really been something if they had just met!
