Come in White

We had a deal

What was that?

I asked her to come dressed in white, if she is in love with me

So she did come right?

That was complicated

Why? Is it a mixed color?



She came wearing white.

Well, that is positive, right?

She got upset.


I was possessive

What’s wrong with that?

I told her to come alone, but.. sigh…

But what? She came with someone you don’t like?

Yes, someone I hate!

Who was that?

Her Husband! I told her to come alone wearing white, but they both came in white. Damn!

The end…
