Ours



Happy Mother's day :)
Is there a phone call you have to make?

Why Mother knows best

David invited his mother over for dinner. During the course of the meal, David's mother couldn't help but keep noticing how beautiful David's roommate, Helen, was.

Over the course of the evening, while watching the two react, she started to wonder if there was more between David and Helen than met the eye. Reading his Mum's thoughts, David volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Helen and I are just roommates."

About a week later, Helen came to David 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?" David said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll send her an e-mail just to be sure.

So he sat down and wrote:
Dear Mum: 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.
Love,
David

Several days later, David received an email back from his mother that read:
Dear Son: I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Helen, I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with Helen. But the fact remains that if Helen was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.
Love,
Mum
