Ed and Dorothy met while on a singles cruise and Ed fell head over heels for
her. When they discovered they lived in the same city only a few miles apart
Ed was ecstatic. He immediately started asking her out when they got home.
Within a couple of weeks, Ed had taken Dorothy to dance clubs, restaurants,
concerts, movies, and museums. Ed became convinced that Dorothy was indeed
his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last.
On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Ed
took Dorothy to a fine restaurant. While having cocktails and waiting for
Their salad, Ed said, “I guess you can tell I’m very much in love with you.
I’d like a little serious talk before our relationship continues to the next
stage. So, before I get a box out of my jacket and ask you a life changing
question, it’s only fair to warn you, I’m a total golf nut. I play golf, I
read about golf, I watch golf on TV. In short, I eat, sleep, and breathe
golf. If that’s going to be a problem, for us, you ’ d better say so now!”
Dorothy took a deep breath and responded, “Ed, that certainly won’t be a
problem. I love you as you are and I love golf too, and since we’re being
totally honest with each other, you need to know something about me.
for about the last five years I’ve been a hooker.”
“Oh. . . I see,” Ed replied. He looked down at the table, and was quiet for
a moment, deep in serious thought then he added, “You know, it’s probably
because you’re not keeping your wrists straight when you hit the ball.
