HAVING MOM OVER FOR DINNER
>Brian Hester invited his mother over for dinner.
>During the course of the meal,
>Brian's mother couldn't help but keep noticing how
>beautiful Brian's roommate, Stephanie, was.
>Mrs. Hester had long been suspicious of a relationship
>between Brian and Stephanie, and this had only made her more curious.
>Over the course of the evening, while watching the two react,
>Mrs. Hester started to wonder if there was more between
>Brian and Stephanie than met the eye.
>Reading his mom's thoughts, Brian volunteered,
>"I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you
>Stephanie and I are just roommates."
>About a week later, Stephanie came to Brian saying,
>"Ever since your mother came to dinner,
>I've been unable to find the beautiful silver gravy ladle.
>You don't suppose she took it, do you?"
>Brian said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll send her an e-mail
>just to be sure."
>So he sat down and wrote:
>I'm not saying that you "did" take the gravy ladle from the house,
>I'm not saying that you "did not" take the gravy ladle.
>But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since
>you were here for dinner.
>Several days later, Brian received a letter from his mother that read:
>I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Stephanie, and I'm not saying
>that you "do not" sleep with Stephanie. But the fact remains that if she was
>sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.
