John and Marie went to the same Baptist church.
Marie went every Sunday and taught Sunday School.
John went on Christmas and Easter and, once in a while, he went on one of the other Sundays.
On one of those Sundays, he was in the pew right behind Marie and he noticed what a fine looking woman she was.
While they were taking up the collection, John leaned forward
and said, "Hey, Marie, how about you and me go to dinner
"Why Yes, John, that would be nice," said Marie.
Well, John couldn't believe his luck. All week long he polished
up his car, and on Friday he picked up Marie and took her
to dinner, the finest restaurant in Raleigh. When they sat down,
John looked over at Marie said, "Hey, Marie, would you like a
cocktail before dinner?" "Oh, no, John,"said ! Marie. "What would I tell my Sunday School class?"
Well, John was setback a bit, so he didn't say much until after dinner. Then he reached in his pocket and pulled out a pack of cigarettes. "Hey, Marie," said John, "Would you like a smoke?"
"Oh, no, John," said Marie. "What would I tell my Sunday School class?"
Well, John was feeling pretty low after that, so he just got in his car and was driving Marie home when they passed the Holiday Inn.
He'd struck out twice already, so he figured he had nothing to lose.
"Hey, Marie," said John, "how would you like to stop at this motel with me?" "Sure, John, that would be nice," said Marie.
Well, John couldn't believe his luck. He did a U-turn right then and there across the median and everything,and drove back to the motel and checked in with Marie. The next morning John got up first.
He looked at Marie lying there in the bed. What have I done?" thought John.
He shook Marie and she woke up. "Marie, I've got to ask you one thing, said John. "What are you going to tell your Sunday School class?"
Marie said, "The same thing I always tell them..............
You don't have to smoke and drink to have a good time."
