Freaky Friday Forwards

I just thought this one was funny....score one for mom.

Brian invited his mother over for dinner. During the course of the meal Brian’s mother couldn't help but notice how beautiful Brian’s roommate, Jennifer, was. Brian’s mom had long been suspicious of a relationship between Brian and Jennifer, and this had only made her more curious.

Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Brian and Jennifer then met the eye.

Reading his mom’s thoughts, Brian volunteered. “I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Jennifer and I are just roommates.”

About a week later, Jennifer came to Brian saying, “Ever since you mother came to dinner, I’ve been unable to find the 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.”

He wrote:
Dear Mom,
I’m not saying that you did take the gravy ladle from the house. I’m not saying that you didn’t. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

Love, Brian

Some days later, Brian received an email back from his mother that read:

Dear Son,
I’m not saying that you do sleep with Jennifer, I’m not saying that you don’t. But the fact remains that if Jennifer is sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.

Love, Mom

VERY FUNNY AND TRUE. There is something that snaps when you become a mom and sometimes you "know" things long before they are ever talked about :)

Very cute story.

I agree with OHN...I pretty much always know when one of my kiddos is not telling the truth completely. I love it!
