NINE MONTHS LATER
Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded up Jack’s mini-van and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So, they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door, if they could spend the night.
“I realize it’s terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but… I am recently widowed,” she explained.
“I am afraid the neighbours will talk if I let you stay in my house.”
“Don’t worry,” Jack said. “We’ll be happy to sleep in the barn and if the weather breaks, we’ll be gone at first light.”
The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. Come morning, weather had cleared and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.
About nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure it out but he finally determined that it was form the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.
He dropped in on his friend, Bob, and asked,
“Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski-holiday up north about 9months ago?”
“Yes, I do,” said Bob.
Did you… errr…. happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a ‘visit’?”
“Wellll…. uhmm… Yes,” Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out, “I have to admit that I did.”
“And…. did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?”
Bob’s face turned beet red and he said, “Yeah…., look, I am sorry, buddy. I am afraid I did! Why do you ask?”
Jack asnwered calmly “She just died and left me everything”
(And you thought the ending would be different, didn’t you?….You know, you smiled.
Now… keep that smile for the rest of the day, OK?)
