I Wish I Hadn't

My wife asked me to stop by her mom's house and pick up a few things for our garage sale. She told me her parents would be at work and to let myself in and grab a couple of boxes in the garage. As I drove up, I noticed a car parked on the street, but I didn't think anything of it. I parked in the driveway and let myself in the front door. Let me tell you, I was shocked when I walked in on my mother-in-law and her lover going at it on the living room floor. My mother-in-law is a very attractive fifty-five-year-old woman, but is about thirty to forty pounds overweight. It was disturbing seeing her sitting on top of her skinny little lover going crazy. I thought she was going to have a heart attack when she saw me standing there in the doorway. I was frozen on the spot, and I just muttered, "Sorry" and forced myself to leave. I just told my wife that I had forgotten my key. The next day, my mother-in-law dropped off the boxes, and neither of us mentioned the previous day's encounter. Her secret is safe with me, but I can't get the image of her and her lover out of my head.
