The other woman

During the proceedings of a court case, the lawyer asked the woman in the witness stand, "Ms. Maira, the defendant's wife has identified you as the 'other woman' in her husband's life. Do you admit that you went to the Crescent hotel with Mr. Jones?"

"Ah, yes," acknowledged Maira with a sob, "but I couldn't help it."

The lawyer asked, "Why couldn't you help it?"

Maira said, "Mr. Jones deceived me."

The lawyer asked, "Be specific. What do you mean?"

"Well, when we signed in," she cried, "he told the hotel clerk I was his wife."
