Mother Knows Best...and Cat In A Glass

Hump day has come and gone...and it's down hill to the weekend. Times flies and I get older every day...*sigh*...I need chocolate! Here's a funny while I go unwrap a few pieces

John invited his mother over for dinner.

During the meal, his mother couldn't help noticing how attractive and shapely the housekeeper was.

Over the course of the evening, she started to wonder if there was more between John and the housekeeper than met the eye.

Reading his mom's thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, my relationship with my housekeeper is purely professional."

About a week later, the housekeeper came to John and said, "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?"

John said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her a letter just to be sure."
So he sat down and wrote:

"Dear Mother, I'm not saying you 'did' take a gravy ladle from my house, and I'm not saying you 'did not' take a gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner."

Several days later, John received a letter back from his mother:

Dear Son, I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with your housekeeper, and I'm not saying that you 'do not' sleep with your housekeeper. But the fact remains that if you were sleeping in your own bed, you would have found the gravy ladle by now."

Love, Mom.

"I got my drink of what do I do?"

    ha ha ha, I needed that laugh, I never expected that ending!!

    Thanks Bonnie for the prayers for my mother and for myself, we need them desperately now, I just want mom to have a great end of life experience, I brought her home with me and now I am hoping she will want to stay. Please continue to lift us up in prayer.

    The letter gave him away, not the ladle!

    That was hilarious! Reminds me of "be sure your sins will find you out"!

    Thanks for visiting my spot. I'm sorry it has such a "profound" effect :>) I've heard that same comment before, it just wasn't about the background!
