The Silver Gravy Ladle
A young college student invites his mother over to eat dinner with himself, and his new roommate. When she arrives, she can’t help but notice, how beautifully stunning his new roommate is. The son tells her that they are, just roommates, they have a strictly platonic relationship and assures her that nothing is going on between them. The mother enjoys a nice dinner, and later goes home.
Two weeks later the girl goes to her roommate, and says that ever since your mother came over for dinner, I can’t find my silver gravy ladle. The son writes his mother a letter saying…”Mom, I’m not saying that you “did” take the silver gravy ladle, and I’m not saying that you “did not” take the silver gravy ladle, but the fact remains, it has been missing since you came over for dinner”.
The mother wrote a letter back to her son saying…”Son, I’m not saying that you “do” sleep with your roommate, and I’m not saying that you “do not” sleep with your roommate, but the fact remains… if she was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the ladle by now”.
