“Hi Ann.”
“Hi Lucy. How did you die?”
“I froze to death.”
“Oh, that must have been horrible.”
“Actually, it wasn’t too bad. After I stopped shaking from the cold, I began to feel warm and sleepy, and I finally died quite peacefully. What about you?”
“I died from a heart attack.”
“How did that happen?”
“Well, I suspected that my husband was having an affair, so I came home early to catch him with his lover, but I found him watching a film on TV all by himself.”
“So why did you have a heart attack?”
“Well, I was so sure he had a lover that I started running all over the house looking for her. I ran up into the attic and down into the basement, I looked in the bathroom and in the bedrooms and in all the wardrobes and behind all the doors and under every bed. I kept looking everywhere until I was so exhausted that I just collapsed and died.”
“I see… It’s a pity you didn’t look in the freezer because we’d both still be alive.”

  1. Tony,
    It is lovely to hear your voice, and these short stories are so funny!!!! This “Two women talking” made me laugh super loudly. Thank you for these opportunities to experience what is in your head. Much love, Geri


  2. My sincere thought and condolence to the poor fellow who suddenly found himself without relationships, two corpses at home and, disgraces never come alone, missing the game of his favourite team on TV
