Lie To The Police And You’ll Be In Hot Water

| Children

(I am fairly young, and home alone with the rest of my siblings. A police officer phones the house for a survey. I know I’m not supposed to let a stranger know we’re home alone, so I think quickly.)

Police Officer: “Hello, is your mother or father home?”

Me: “Uh… my mom’s in the shower right now.”

Police Officer: “Oh, what about your father?”

Me: “Uh… he’s in the shower too!”

(The police officer pauses; he tries to stifle his laughter.)

Police Officer: “BOTH your parents are in the shower?”

Me: “Yes…”

(I didn’t understand why he was laughing until much, MUCH later in life.)
