young technician and his general manager board a train headed through the mountains
on its way to Wichita. They can find no place to sit except for two seats right
across the aisle from a young woman and her grandmother.
a while, it is obvious that the young woman and the young tech are interested
in each other because they are giving each other "looks". Soon the
train passes into a tunnel and it is pitch black. There is a sound of the smack
of a kiss followed by the sound of the smack of a slap. When the train emerges
from the tunnel, the four sit there without saying a word.
grandmother is thinking to herself: "It was very brash for that young man
to kiss my granddaughter, but I'm glad she slapped him."
General manager is setting there thinking: "I didn't know the young tech
was brave enough to kiss the girl, but I sure wish she hadn't missed him when
she slapped and hit me!"
young woman was sitting and thinking: "I'm glad the guy kissed me, but
I wish my grandmother had not slapped him!"
young tech sat there with a satisfied smile on his face. He thought to himself:
"Life is good. How often does a guy have the chance to kiss a beautiful
girl and slap his general manager all at the same time!"
