By the time a Marine pulled into a little town, 
every hotel 
room was

"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 Navy guy," 
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 Marine assured him. "I'll

take it."

The next morning the Marine came down to 
breakfast bright-eyed 
and bushy-tailed. "How'd you sleep?" Asked the 

"Never better." 

The manager was impressed. "No problem with the 
other guy 
snoring, then?"

"Nope, I shut him up in no time." Said the 

"How'd you manage that?" asked the manager. 

"He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came

in the 
room," the Marine explained. "I went over, gave 
him a kiss on 
the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful,' and he 
sat up all 
night watching me."
