Learning to play the harmonica
A newly married sailor was informed by the navy that he was going to be stationed a long way from home on a remote island in the Pacific for a year.
A few weeks after he got there he began to miss his new wife, so he wrote her a letter.
"My love," he wrote "we are going to be apart for a very long time.
Already I'm starting to miss you and there's really not much to do here in the evenings. Besides that we're constantly surrounded by young attractive native girls. Do you think if I had a hobby of some kind I would not be tempted?"
So his wife sent him a harmonica and, in the letter that accompanied it, she wrote, "Why don't you learn to play this?"
Eventually his tour of duty came to an end and he rushed back to his wife in The States.
"Darling" he said, "I can't wait to get you into bed so that we can make mad passionate love!"
She kissed him and said, "First let's see you play that harmonica.
