Ed and Nancy met while on a singles cruise. They were immediately attracted to each other, and spent all their days together sunning on the deck. When they discovered they lived in the same city, only a few miles apart, Ed was ecstatic. When they got back home, he immediately started asking her out.
Within just a few weeks, Ed had taken Nancy to dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, movies, and museums. Ed became convinced that Nancy was indeed his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last.
On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Ed took Nancy to a fine restaurant. While having cocktails and waiting for their salad, Ed said, "I guess you can tell I'm very much in love with you. I'd like a little serious talk before our relationship continues to the next stage.
Before I get a little box out of my pocket and ask you a life changing question, it's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut. I play golf, I read about golf, I spend my weekends watching golf on TV. In short, I eat, sleep, and breathe golf. Some days, that's all I can think about. If that's going to be a problem for us, you'd better say so now!"
Nancy took a deep breath and responded, "Ed, that certainly won't be a problem. I love you as you are, and I love golf too. But, since you're being totally honest with me, I need to be totally honest with you too. Until I met you on the cruise, I had spent the past ten years being a hooker."
"Oh wow! I see," Ed replied. He, paused, looked down at the table, and was silent for a moment. Nancy was afraid she had blown her chance to marry a really nice man.
Ed sat there silently, deep in serious thought, then he quickly replied, "You know, it's probably because you're not keeping your wrists straight when you hit the ball."
