Two people living in a retirement home


Two people living in a retirement home, an old man and an old woman, had known each other for several years.

One evening there was a community dinner in the large meeting hall.

They were both at the same table, facing each other.

During the meal, the man gave her a few admiring glances and then finally worked up the courage to ask her, “Will you marry me?

After about six seconds of “careful consideration,” she said, “Yes. Yes, I will.

The meal ended, and after some pleasant conversation, they went to their respective places.

The next morning, the man was in a bad mood. “Did she say ‘yes’ or ‘no’?” He could not remember. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t remember. Not even a faint memory.

Frightened, he went to the phone and called her. First he told her that he couldn’t remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the good evening that had passed.

When he got a little more courage, he asked, “When I asked you to marry me, did you say ‘yes’ or ‘no’?”

He was delighted to hear her say, “Yes, I did, and I said it with all my heart.

Then he continued,

“I’m so glad you called because I couldn’t remember who asked me!”
