“Hi honey. This is Daddy. Is Mommy near the phone?”
“No, Daddy She’s upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Johnnie.”
After a brief pause, Daddy says,
“But honey, you haven’t got an Uncle Johnnie.”
“Oh yes I do, and he’s upstairs in the room with Mommy, Right now.”
“Uh, okay then, this is what I want you to do
Put the phone down on the table, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout to Mommy that Daddy’s car just pulled into the driveway.”
“Okay, Daddy, Just a minute.”
A few minutes later
The little girl comes back to the phone.
“I did it, Daddy.”
“And what happened, honey?” He asked.
“Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming. Then she tripped over the rug, hit her head on the dresser and now she isn’t moving at all!”
“Oh my God!!! What about your Uncle Johnnie?”
“He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too. He was all scared and he jumped out of the back window and into the swimming pool. But I guess he didn’t know that you took the water out last week to clean it. He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he’s dead.”
***Even Longer Pause* **
Then Daddy says, “Swimming pool?
Is this 469-5575?”
“No, I think you have the wrong number…….”
