Big Luggage
Mr. Smith was a traveling salesman and frequent flyer, so he was always
very, VERY careful to mark his luggage so that no one would mistakenly
take his bags.  He always did this carefully, with bright ribbons and
tape, so he was quite surprised to see his bags grabbed by a well
dressed man.

Mr. Smith pointed out the colored ribbons tied to

looked her softly in the eyes.

“Marcia, I know we’ve only known each other for a couple of hours, but we have so much in common. I feel I have known you all my life. Will you marry me and be my wife?”

Marcia grabbed at Jimmie’s hands and said, “Why, yes, I will marry you! You have made me so very happy!”

She reached over and kissed him gently on the cheek. Then Marcia said, “You
said you had two questions to ask me. What is the second question?”

Jimmie scratched his neck and said, “Will you help me get up?”
