A young couple was invited to a swanky masked Halloween party. The wife came down with a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party without her and have a good time. Being the devoted husband, he protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed. She said there was no need for him to miss the fun. Reluctantly, he took his costume and away he went.
The wife, after sleeping soundly for one hour, awakened without pain, and since it was still early, she decided to go to the party. Since her husband did not know what her costume was, she thought she would have some kicks watching him to see how he acted when she was not around. She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor. He was dancing with every beautiful girl he could, all the while, copping a feel here, and stealing a little kiss there. His wife sidled up to him,
and being a rather seductive babe herself, he immediately left his current dance floor partner and devoted his time to the new “action.” She let him flirt and tease as much as he wished, and in fact, encouraged his actions somewhat. Finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed. Off they went to one of the restrooms for a secret “quickie.”
Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped out, went home, put the costume away and got into bed…she was quite curious as to what kind of explanation he might have for his notorious behavior.
She was sitting up reading when he came in, and she asked him what he had done. He said, “Oh, you know, the same old thing. I never have a good time when you’re not there.”
Then she asked, “Well, did you dance much?” He replied, “I’ll tell you Sweetheart, I never even danced once. When I got to the party, I met Pete, Bill and some of the other guys…we just went into the den and played poker all evening.”
“Oh, Really?” commented the wife.
“Yeah,” he said. “But I will tell you one thing… the guy that I loaned my costume to sure had one helluva time!”
