By the time the soldier pulled into the
little town, every hotel room was taken. ?You?ve got to have a room somewhere?,
he pleaded with a proprietor. ?Well, I do have a double room with one occupant,
but he is an Air Force guy? admitted the manager, and he might be glad to split
the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in
adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I?m not sure it?d be worth it to
? No problem.? the tired Army guy assured him, ?I?ll take it.? The next morning
the soldier came down to breakfasts bright-eyed and bushy tailed. ?How?d you
sleep?? asked the manager. ?Never better?, said the soldier. The manager was
impressed. ?No problem with the other guy snoring all night long?? ?No, I shut
him up in no time?, explained the soldier.
?How?d you manage that?? asked the proprietor.
?Well, he was already in bed, snoring away, when I walked into the room, so I
gave him a kiss on the cheek? explained the soldier. ?Then, I whispered in his
ear ?Good night beautiful?, and he sat up all night watching me.?
