Four strangers traveled togetherin

Four strangers traveled togetherin
the same compartment of a European train. Two men and two women
faced each other.One woman was a very wealthy and sophisticated
70 year old lady who was decked outin the finest of furs and jewelry.
Next to her sat a beautiful young woman, nineteenyrs. old–who
looked like something right off the cover of a fashion magazine.
Acrossfrom the older lady was a very mature looking man in his
mid-fifties, who was a highlydecorated colonel in the air force.
Next to the colonel sat a young private freshout of boot camp.
As these four strangers traveled, they talked and chatted abouttrivial
things until they entered an unlighted tunnel, and there they
sat in completedarkness and total silence, until the sound of
a distinct kiss broke the silence;following the kiss a loud slap
could be heard throughout the cabin. In the ensuingperiod of silence
the four strangers sat quietly with their own thoughts. The olderlady
was thinking, ‘Isn’t it wonderful that even in this permissive
day and age thereare still young women who have a little self-respect
and dignity?’ The young woman,shaking her head and greatly puzzled,
asked herself, ‘Why in the world would any manin his right mind
want to kiss an old fossil like that when I’m sitting here?’ Thecolonel,
rubbing his sore face, was outraged that any woman could ever
think thata man in his position would try to sneak a kiss in the
dark. The private, grinningfrom ear to ear, was thinking, ‘What
a crazy andmixed up world this is when a privatecan kiss the back
of his own hand, and then smack a colonel in the face and get
awaywith it!
