Marilyn giggled and kissed Joe on the cheek which already had lipsticks marks all over. Come on Joe let me clean you up a little. She took a kleenex out of her small purse and tried to dab it up. Gee Honey I’m sorry I made things worse. Joe gallantly said: “Don’t worry kid” And this was the start of nine months of bliss. Nine giggling blissful months. And though neither the bliss nor the marriage lasted the diamonds did. Diamonds are forever.
