An Unexpected Phone Call
“Hello, is this daddy? Hi, it’s me, honey. Is mommy nearby?”
“No, daddy, she’s upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul.”
Following a brief moment of silence, daddy responds, “But sweetheart, you don’t have an Uncle Paul.”
“Oh yes, mommy insists that I do, and they are both upstairs in the bedroom right now.” After a short pause, daddy instructs, “Alright, here’s what I want you to do. Place the phone down on the table, hurry upstairs, knock on the bedroom door, and shout that daddy’s car has just arrived in the driveway.”
“Sure thing, daddy. Give me a moment.”
The Unforeseen Outcome
A few minutes later, the little girl returns to the phone. “I did it, daddy.” Curious, daddy asks, “And what happened, sweetheart?” She responds, “Well, mommy became extremely frightened, hastily leaped out of bed without any clothes on, and started running around, screaming in panic. In the commotion, she stumbled over the rug, hit her head on the dresser, and now she’s not moving at all.” “Oh my goodness! And what about your Uncle Paul?” Daddy queries. The girl replies, “He also leaped out of bed without any clothes on, just like mommy. Fear-stricken, he jumped out of the window at the back of the house and into the swimming pool. However, unbeknownst to him, you had drained the water and cleaned it last week. He collided with the pool’s floor, and I believe he may have passed away.”
The Moment of Truth
A long pause ensues, followed by the father’s bewildered words, “Swimming pool?… Is this 486-5731?” Remember, laughter is best shared, so spread the joy by sharing this anecdote with your dear friends and family members.
