Double room


In the early nineties I went to the Frankfurt Book Fair as publisher. I had reserved a double room in a small hotel in Königstein, not far from Frankfurt. I was convinced that I would meet someone on the train who would share the room with me, and perhaps more than only the room.
When I arrived late at night in Königstein the owner of the hotel asked: "Where is your wife?"
"She fell ill," I answered.
