Mary was walking through Walmart when she ran into Harry, who she hadn’t seen in a couple of years. They got to talking and eventually Harry enquired after Grahame; her husband.
“Oh Dear: haven’t you heard? Unfortunately he’s no longer with us.”
“I’m sorry to hear that. If it’s not too intrusive, can I enquire what he died of?”
“The big C got him.”
“Oh my God” he replied, “Cancer is so common nowadays.”
“Ah no it wasn’t cancer, he fell overboard the ferry, and drowned in THE BIG SEA!”
