A SHORT LOVE STORY
A man and a woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on the Indian Pacific 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, "Excuse me. 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 nice idea!" he exclaimed.
"Good," she replied. "Get your own DAMN blanket!"
After a moment of silence, he farted.
Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.
