Description: Costume Party
A couple was invited to a swanky masked Costume Party. She got a terrible
headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He protested, ever
the devoted husband, but she insisted: she was going to take some aspirin
and go to bed, and there was no need of his good time being spoiled. So he
took his costume and away he went.
The wife slept soundly for an hour and awakened without pain. As it was
still early, she decided to go to the party. Since her husband did not know
what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching him
to see how he acted when she was not around.
She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the
dance floor, dancing with every woman he could, and touching a little bit
here and a sneaking a little kiss there. His wife sidled up to him and,
since she was a rather seductive woman, he left his partner high and dry
and devoted his time to the new stuff that had just arrived.
She let him go as far as he wished, naturally; he was her husband. Finally
he whispered a proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to
one of the cars and had a little fun. Just before unmasking at midnight,
she slipped away. Back at home she hid the costume away and got into bed,
wondering what kind of explanation he would make for his behavior.
She was sitting up reading when he came in and asked what kind of a time he
had had. He said, "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good
time when you're not there."
"Did you dance much?" she asked coyly.
"I'll tell you what," he replied, "I never even danced one dance. When I
got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys. You know they hate
those kind of things, and you weren't around, so we all went into the den
and played poker the whole night. But I'll tell you something else: the guy
I loaned my costume to had a HELL of a good time!"
