[I received this in a chain email from a crazy cousin and thought I would share…]
Pedro invited his mother over for dinner.
During the course of the meal, Pedro’s mother couldn’t help but notice how beautiful Pedro’s “roommate”, Jazmin was.
Pedro’s Mom (whose name is not relevant, but if you really want to know, its Parangaricutirimicuaro) had long been suspicious of a relationship between Pedro and Jazmin, and this had only made her more curious (and you know how metiche parents can be).
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Pedro and Jazmin than met the eye.
Reading his mom’s thoughts, Pedro volunteered, “I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Jazmin and I are just roommates.”
About a week later, Jazmin came to Pedro saying, “Ever since your mother came to dinner, I’ve been unable to find the beautiful silver gravy ladle. You don’t suppose she took it, do you?”
Pedro said, ‘Well, I doubt it, but I’ll send her an e-mail just to be sure.”
So he sat down and wrote:
Querida Mami (Dear Mom),
I’m not saying that you ‘did’ take the gravy ladle from the house,
I’m not saying that you ‘did not’ take the gravy ladle.
But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Several days later, Pedro received an email back from his mother that read:
I’m not saying that you ‘do’ sleep with Jazmin, I’m not saying that
you ‘do not’ sleep with Jazmin.
But the fact remains that if Jazmin is sleeping in her own bed, she
would have found the gravy ladle by now 🙂
LESSON OF THE DAY –
No matter how ancient and traditionally old-fashioned your parents may be, chances are they have already awkwardly been there and done that…
