Two men are crossing the Pennines when their car packs up
on them and they are left stranded. Fortunately, they spot a
little cottage and decide to ask for shelter. The door is
opened by a widow who immediately invites them in and
gives them something to eat.
“I’m sorry, I only have a single bed in the spare room, so one
of you will have to share with me. Steve picks the short straw
and ends up sleeping with the widow who is so starved for
sex that the night turns out to be very passionate.
The following morning, they have breakfast and say
“Martin, I’ve got something to confess,” says Steve. “When
she asked me for my name and address I gave her yours. You
know what my wife is like, she’d have murdered me.”
However, Martin is not amused and when they return home,
they don’t see each other for over a year, until they meet up
again in the bank.
“I’m glad I’ve seen you,” says Martin. “I’ve had a letter from
the solicitor of that widow, he…”
But before he can continue, Steve interrupts.
“Listen, I really am sorry about that. As it happens, my wife’s
left me anyway.”
“No, no,” says Martin. “I just wanted to let you know that the
widow has died and left me £2 million.”
