Being the devoted husband, Mike protested, but Alice argued that there was no need for his good time to be spoiled just because she wasn't going.
Alice was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and urged Mike to go to the party and enjoy himself.
After taking some aspirin and sleeping for an hour or so, Alice awakened without any pain and as it was still early, decided to go to the party.
Since Mike had no idea what Alice's costume was, Alice thought she would have some fun by watching Mike to see how he acted when she wasn't with him.
Alice joined the party and quickly spotted the masked Mike cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every chick he could, copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.
Alice casually sidled up to Mike and being a seductive woman herself, Mike left his partner high and dry and turned his attentions to Alice.
Naturally, since Mike was her husband, Alice allowed him to go as far as he wanted.
Eventually, Mike leaned closer to Alice and whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed. The two of them went out to one of the cars and had a little bang.
Just before unmasking at midnight, Alice slipped away and went home. She put the costume away and got into bed wondering what kind of explanation Mike would have for his behavior.
Alice was still awake when Mike came in so she asked him what kind of time he had. "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never enjoy myself when you're not with me." Mike replied.
"Did you dance very much?" Alice asked.
"I never even danced one dance." Mike said. "When I got there, I met up with a few of the guys, so we went into the den and played cards all evening."
"But I'll tell you... the guy that borrowed my costume sure had a real good time!"
