We had quite a fright last night. My wife and I were in the backyard getting high. The moonlight was so bright and she was wearing a skimpy little nightie that didn’t leave much to the imagination. Things were starting, much to my delight, to get quite amorous when my wife abruptly stopped. She whispered that something came into sight that didn’t seem right, and then she screamed with all her might. I said to her, “Hey, baby, are you alright?”
She said, “I think I saw our neighbor standing by the fence. It wasn’t very light, but I could see him and his beady eyes staring at us.”
I said, “Don’t worry, I’ll go set him straight.” I grabbed my flashlight and ran over to the fence like a freight train and shined it in his face. I was prepared for a fight, but the voyeur took flight before I could say a word to him.
I went back to where my wife was sitting and sighed. I told her I scared him off and she thanked me for taking that weight from her shoulders. “You’re my knight in shining armor,” she said. “It’s almost midnight. Let’s go inside, have a nightcap, and then pick up where we left off before that guy frightened me.”
I grabbed her hand and said, “That sounds delightful,” and we went back into house. I must admit that in hindsight, it turned out to be a downright wonderful night.

And just for fun…
