Just a few afterthoughts, after Christmas. A friend of mine sent me this joke:
Mom visits her son, who shares an apartment with a female. The son insists that the young woman is just a roommate, nothing more, but Mom senses that something else is going on. They have dinner and as the evening progresses, Mom's suspicions grow. But reading her thoughts, the son tells her, “I know what you're thinking, but I assure you, we share an apartment to save money, that's it."
A few days later, his roommate mentions that their silver plate has gone missing, ever since his mother came to visit. "You
don't suppose she took it, do you?" she asks.
"I doubt it," he replies. "But I'll
email her, just to be sure." He sits down and writes: Dear Mom, I'm
not saying you ‘did' take the silver plate from my house. I'm not
saying you ‘did not' take the silver plate. But the fact remains
that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner. Love, your
He receives an email back: Dear Son, I'm not saying you ‘do' sleep with your
roommate, and I'm not saying you ‘do not' sleep with her. But the
fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have
found the silver plate by now, under her pillow… Love, Mom
