A couple was invited to a swanky costume party. The Mrs. got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone.
He being a devoted husband protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and there was no need for his good time not being spoiled by his not going. So he took his costume and away he went.
The wife after sleeping soundly for about an hour, awakened without pain and, as it was still early, decided to go to the party.
Since her husband did not know what her costume was she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him.
She joined the party and soon spotted her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice woman he could, and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.
His wife sidled up to him, and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his current partner high and dry and devoted his attention to the new babe that had just arrived. She let him go as far as he wished, naturally since he was her husband.
Finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear, and he agreed. So they went off to one of the cars and had a quickie.
Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away, went home, put the costume away, got into bed wondering what kind of explanation he would have for his behavior;.
She was sitting up in bed reading when he came in, and she asked him what kind of time he had. He said, "You know, the same old thing. I never have a good time when you're not there."
-"Did you dance much?"
-"I'll tell you. I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete Brown, Bill Brown and some other guys and we went into the den and played poker all evening.
But you're not going to believe what happened to the guy I loaned my costume to!!!!"
