I received this comment and story from John Ragatz yesterday. ChuckR/
“I just received this humorous e-mail and started thinking ahead wondering if our 60th in 2018 will become a reality? It becomes increasingly challenging to pull it off as we all get older!
If you think it is appropriate, at some point, you might want to include on our Class of 1958 Website, this Reunion joke for a laugh or two to liven up our aging group? It is not uncommon for singles, widowed or divorced, to reunite at class reunions and end up getting married!! These two started the process and stumbled probably with the man asking more than one classmate to marry him and more than one gal saying “yes”😝
60th High School 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 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!”
