A couple from Minneapolis decided to go to Florida for a long weekend
to thaw out during one particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at
the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years ago.
Because both had jobs they found it difficult coordinating their
travel schedules. It was decided that the husband would fly to Florida on a
Thursday, and his wife would follow him the next day.
Upon arriving as planned, the husband checked into the hotel. In his
room was a computer so he decided to send his wife an e-mail back in
Minneapolis. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her address, and sent the e-mail, without realizing his error.
In Houston, a widow had just returned from her husband's funeral. The dearly departed was a minister of many years who had been called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow checked her e-mail,
expecting messages from relatives and friends.
Upon reading the first message, she fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived.
I know you are surprised to hear from me. They have computers here
now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I've just arrived
and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your
arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!
