He was a widower, and she was a widow. They had known each other for a number of years, being high school classmates and having attended class reunions over the years.
On the 50th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles. They had a wonderful evening, the widower throwing admiring glances across the table, and the widow smiling coyly back at him. Finally he picked up courage and asked, “Will you marry me?” After only about 6 seconds, she answered “Yes!” “Yes I will.” The evening ended on a happy note for the widower.
But the next morning he was troubled. Did she say “yes,” or did she say “no?” He couldn’t recall. His mind was blank. He remembered asking the question but could not recall her response.
With much fear, he picked up the phone and called her. First he explained that he could not remember as well as he used to. He reviewed the past evening and gained a little courage. He then said, “When I asked you to marry me, did you say “yes,” or did you say “no?”
'Why you silly man', I said “yes, I will marry you - and I meant it with all my heart.' The widower was delighted, and he felt his heart skip a beat. Then she continued, “and I am so glad you called, because I could not remember who asked me!”
