The Skiing Trip

Dec 19th 2010 at 12:06 PM


John  decided to go skiing with his buddy, Keith. So they  loaded up John's minivan and headed  north.

After  driving for a few hours, they got caught in a  terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm  and asked the attractive lady who answered the door  if they could spend the night.

'I  realize it's terrible weather out there and I have  this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently  widowed,' she explained. 'I'm afraid the neighbours  will talk if I let you stay in my  house.'

'Don't worry,' John said.  'We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the  weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light.' The  lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the  barn and settled in for the  night.

Come  morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on  their way.

They enjoyed a great weekend of  skiing.

But about nine months later, John got  an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a  few minutes to figure it out, but he finally  determined that it was from the attorney of that  attractive widow he had met on the ski  weekend.

He dropped in on his friend  Keith and asked, 'Keith, do you remember that  good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our  ski holiday up north about 9 months  ago?'

'Yes, I do.' Said  Keith.

'Did  you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the  night, go up to the house and pay her a  visit?'

'Well, um, yes!,' Keith said, a  little embarrassed about being found  out, 'I have to  admit that I did.'

And did you happen  to give her my name instead of telling her your  name?'

Keith's face turned beet red and he  said,'Yeah, look, I'm sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I  did.' 'Why do you ask?'

'She just died  and left me everything.'

(And you  thought the ending would be different, didn't  you?)
