A Desperate Marriage Proposal
Aplu really loved a woman, but he was just too shy to propose to her. Now he was up in his years and neither of them had ever been married. Though they were good friends, he was so timid he just never got around to suggesting marriage much less living together.
But one day, he became determined to ask her the question. So he calls her on the phone, "Jassi?"
"Yes, this is Jassi."
"Will you marry me?"
"Of course I will! Who's this?"
