Silence Enbolden

By the time the Chief pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken.  “You’ve got to have a room somewhere,” he pleaded, “or just a bed, I don’t care where.”

“Well, I do have a double room with one occupant – a Marine Gunny,” admitted the manager, “and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I’m not sure it’d be worth it to you.”

“No problem,” the tired Chief assured him, “I’ll take it.”

The next morning the Chief came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

“How’d you sleep?” asked the manager.

“Never better.”

The manager was impressed. “No problem with the other guy snoring?”

“Nope, I shut him up in no time”, said the Chief.

“How’d you manage that?” asked the manager.

“He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room,” the Chief explained. “I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, and said, ‘Goodnight, beautiful,’ and he sat up all night watching me.”
