A couple from Minneapolis decided to go to Florida to thaw out during
one particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the very same
hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of
hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel
schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on
Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband
checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he
decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left
out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error,
he sent the e-mail.
Meanwhile...somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from
her husband's funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called
home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to
check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends.
After reading the first message, she fainted. The widow's son rushed
into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer
screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived
Date: 16 May 2004
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now
and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I've just
arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been
prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you
then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!
