Joke: The High School Reunion

A husband and wife are sitting at a table at his high school reunion, and the husband keeps staring at a drunken woman sitting alone at a nearby table, downing glass after glass.

"Do you know her?" the wife asks.

"Yes," the husband says, with a self-important sigh. "She was my old girlfriend. I hear she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and she hasn't been sober since."

"Wow!" the wife says. "Who would think a person could keep celebrating that long?"
