I wanted to at least have a little bit of fun before I became a vegetable in a chair. That's why I had decided to go to Vegas. It was a too hot night in June there, and I woke up in the middle of the night, realizing that I needed to open a window. When I climbed out of the bed, I hadn't really registered that someone else was also in the bed.
It wasn't until I had turned from the window to come back to the bed, and then I saw her. Her hair was a beautiful brown and it was spread out all over the pillows. I looked at her and thought, how is it that such a beautiful women could be laying in a bed with me, and I don't even know who she is?..
I woke her up, because as much as she looked peaceful, I couldn't stand being in a room with a stranger. We talked for several hours, and she had as bad a memory as I did. But the rings on our fingers and the marriage license on the bedside table told us we had gotten married.
