It was called the Tunnel of Love. Its bright neon sign never failed to greet him as he walked home to his dingy apartment.
One night, Nelson was feeling so lonely he stopped by the place.
He was about to enter when the young lady behind the counter stopped him.
“Wait!” she said. “You have to pay first.”
“How much you got?”
“I’m afraid that’s not enough,” she said with a smile that reminded him of his former girlfriend. “But you’re always welcome to come back.”
Nelson left just in time before the cops raided the place.
