A Fake Fiasco

An introduction:  A husband, contemplating suicide while hanging off the Brooklyn Bridge, discovers he’s real.  He’s also late for his fake wife’s dinner party.  Returning home, he tells her he wants to leave her—and she is irate.  Guests are coming and he’s been on the six o’clock news embarrassing her!  Ding-dong, the guests arrive, a gay couple, and so does the fun and the question—who wants to stay fake and who wants to get real?  Dinner is served and so is the choice.  Bon appétit!
