Michael was feeling ill at work, and left after
lunch to go home. He walked into the house and
found his wife Sandra in the arms of another
He started to yell at the interloper, "What
right have you got to be making love to my wife?"
The man answered calmly, "You may as well know
that I am in love with Sandra and I would like
to marry her. I understand you're a gambler.
Why don't you be a good sport and sit down and
play a game of gin rummy with me? If I lose,
I'll never see her again; if you lose, you must
agree to divorce her.... Okay?"
"Okay," replied Michael, "but just to make
it a little more interesting, why don't we play
for a dollar a point?"
