Childhood sweethearts


Larry and Sally, an elderly married couple who were once childhood sweethearts had settled down in their old neighbourhood. 

To celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary they walk down to visit their old school. There, they hold hands as they find the desk they shared and where he had carved “I love you, Sally.”

On their way back home, a bag of money falls out of an armoured car practically at their feet. Sally quickly picks it up, and because they don’t know what to do with it, they take it home. When they count the money, they find out it’s fifty-thousand dollars.

Larry says: “We’ve got to give it back.”

She says, “Finders keepers,” puts the money back in the bag and hides it up in their attic.

The next day, two policemen are going from door-to-door in the neighbourhood looking for the money in people’s homes.

One knocks on the door of Larry and Sally’s house and  says: “Pardon me, but did either of you find any money that fell out of an armoured car yesterday?”

Sally says: “No…”

Larry says: “She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.”

Sally pipes up: “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile.”

But the policemen sits Larry down and begins to question him.

One says: “Tell us the story from the beginning.”

Larry says: “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday…”

At this, the policeman looks at his partner and says: “We’re outta here…”
