A small tourist hotel in a beach resort was filled with gossip due to an afternoon wedding that was being held there.
There was nothing out of the ordinary about the wedding itself, however at this particular wedding, the groom was 95 years old and the bride was a beautiful woman who was only 23.
The groom looked rather feeble and the general feeling among the other guests at the hotel was that the exertion of the wedding night would be enough to finish him off, because his bride was a stunning young woman.
However, much to their surprise, the bride came down the main staircase of the hotel to the lobby the next morning, slowly, step by step, hanging onto the banister for dear life.
She finally managed to stagger her way to the counter of the little shop in the hotel lobby.
The assistant in the shop looked really concerned, “Whatever happened to you, honey? You look like you’ve been wrestling an alligator!””
The bride groaned, hung on to the counter and managed to speak, “Oh God! He told me he’d been saving up for 75 years and I thought he meant his money!”
