Once Upon a Class Reunion

He was a widower and she a widow. They had known each other for a number of years being high school classmates and having attended  class reunions in the last 20 years without fail.This 50th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles.  They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high. The widower throwing admiring glances across the table.  The widow smiling coyly back at him.Finally, he picked up courage to ask her, “Will  you marry me?”

After about six seconds of careful consideration, 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 remember.  Try as he would, he just could not recall.  He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank.

He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response.  With fear and trepidation he picked up the phone and called her.

First, he explained that he couldn’t remember as well as he used to.  Then he reviewed the past evening.  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?

“Why you silly man I said, Yes. Yes I will.  And I meant it with all my heart.”

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.  Then she continued. “And I am so glad you called because I couldn’t remember who asked me!
