The man was unable to travel with his wife, agreeing to catch up with her a few days later.
When the woman arrives and checks in at the hotel, she decides to send an e-mail to her husband, but she gets one letter wrong and inadvertently sends it to another address.
The e-mail is received by mistake by a widower who has just arrived from his wife’s funeral, and when reading his e-mail he instantly faints.
The widower’s son, upon entering the room, finds his father unconscious on the floor, at the foot of the computer, on whose screen one could read:
I have arrived well.
You may be surprised to hear from me this way, but now they have computers here and you can send messages to your loved ones.
I just arrived and I have checked that everything is ready for when you arrive this coming Friday.
I am looking forward to seeing you and I hope that your trip is as calm and relaxed as mine has been.
PS: Don’t bring too many clothes. Here is infernal heat!
