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 past without fail.
This 60th 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!”
