Mrs. O'Brien comes to visit her son Seamus for 3 days in Dublin
where he is studying. She finds out that her son lives with
Vikki, a girl roommate. Mrs. O'Brien couldn't help but notice
how pretty Seamus' room-mate was. She suspects of a relationship
between the two, and this had only made her more curious.
Reading his Mum's thoughts, Seamus
volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure
you, Vikki and I are just room-mates."
About a week later, Vikki came to Seamus
saying," Ever since your mother left, I've been unable to find
the silver sugar bowl. You don't suppose she took it do you?"
"Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her, just to be sure." So he
sat down and wrote:
Dear Mum, I'm not saying that you "did" take
the sugar bowl from my house, and I'm not saying that you "did
not" take it. But the fact remains that it has been missing ever
since you left. Love, Seamus.
Several days later, Seamus received an email
from his Mum which read:
Dear Son, I'm not saying that you "do" sleep
with Vikki, and I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with her.
But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed,
she would have found the sugar bowl by now. Love, Mum.
Lesson of the day... Don't Lie to Your
Mother...especially if she is Irish.
