                     IJMC - Marriage on the Brain

Two posts in a row? Both about marriage? What can it mean?! Not much,
other than I am leaping ahead and sending out "tomorrow's" post today. End
of the month update and all that, wanna make sure it works while I am
thinking about it. That and I will be away this weekend so I may do a few
fillers between now and then. Makes the archives look nice and neat.

So, fellow burlyman Rusty asked if I was interested in checking out his
quiz "to let you know where you lie on the spectrum of sexuality". Me, I
lie about sexuality on every third date. Or not. Well, I was interested,
what can a web page tell me about whether I am straight or gay or
somewhere else altogether. After 50 questions, the computer thought long
and hard and decided it was a whopping 70.26% confident that I am

Whelp, two long blurbs in a row...no writer's block here! G'night!   -dave

There were these two elderly people living in a Florida mobile home park.
He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for a number
of years.

Now, one evening there was a community supper in the big activity center.
These two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal
went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his
courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"

After about six seconds of 'careful consideration,' she answered. "Yes.
Yes, I will."

The meal ended and with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their
respective places.

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. Not even a
faint memory.

With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her. First, he
explained to her that he didn't remember as well as he used to. Then he
reviewed the lovely evening past. 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'?"

He was delighted to hear her say, "Why, I said, 'Yes, yes I will' and I
meant it with all my heart." Then she continued, "And I am so glad that
you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me."
