As he sat down, another man came along and asked if anyone was sitting in the seat next to him.
“No”, he said, “it’s empty”.
“That’s incredible!” the man said, “who in their right mind would have a seat like this to one of the biggest sporting event of the whole year and not use it?”
“Well, actually, the seat belongs to me”, the second man said. My wife always would come with me, but she passed away. This is the first Masters we haven’t been to together since we got married”.
“Oh I am so sorry”, the first man said. “I suppose you couldn’t find someone else to join you, a friend, relative or neighbor to use the ticket?”
The man shook his head, “Unfortunately no, they are all at the funeral”.
