THE SCENE

A COUPLE HAD BEEN MARRIED FOR ABOUT FIVE YEARS AND THEY,
TO THE WIFE'S DISGUST, NEVER PERFORMED THE MARRIAGE ACT.
THE HUSBAND, IT SEEMED, WAS IMPOTENT, SO ONE DAY THE WIFE
TOLD HIM TO GO TO A DOCTOR TO SEE WHAT COULD BE DONE.
THE DOCTOR SAID HE COULD HELP AND GAVE THE MAN SOME
PILLS TO BE TAKEN AT SUPPER TIME. HE TOLD THE HUSBAND
TO TAKE ONE AT DINNER THAT NIGHT AND HIS WIFE WOULD
HAVE NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT. SO THAT NIGHT, AT
DINNER, HE NOT ONLY GAVE HIMSELF A PILL, BUT SLIPPED
ONE INTO HIS WIFE'S COFFEE. NEVER SINCE HAVE THEY
SEEN SUCH ACTIVITY AT HOWARD'S JOHNSON'S.
