Just for Laughs

My boyfriend was dying. I was by his bedside when he said in a weak voice, “There’s something I must confess.”

“Shh” I said, “There’s nothing to confess. Everything is alright.”

“No I must die in peace” he said, “I had an affair with your sister, your best friend, and your co-worker.”

“I know” I whispered, “That’s why I poisoned you…now close your eyes.”
