THE LONG WALK By P.S. Joshi
John was a nice guy, but he had two big faults, telling tall tales and overeating.
His wife Marg had enough. One night she found him gorging at midnight. She came up behind him and said, “John.”
He jumped about a foot. “Would you believe–and it’s a fact–would you believe I had this strange dream where I was walking across a long, wide terrace? I walked and walked. I woke up to find myself sitting here eating in the kitchen.”
She shook her head, trying not to laugh. “No,” she said. “I don’t believe a word of it.”
