Received email: I think you’ll like this one.

You don’t even have to be a mother to enjoy this one... but it might help.

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 than 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 your mother came to dinner, I’ve been unable to find the beautiful silver gravy ladle, the one that my mother gave to me. You don’t suppose she took it, do you?"

Brian was a little taken aback by this but could see his girlfriends had her suspicion, said, "Well, I doubt it, but I’ll send her an e-mail just to be sure."

So he sat down and wrote: Dear Mom,I’m not saying that you "did" take the silver gravy ladle from the house, I’m not saying that you "did not" take the gravy ladle. But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner. Love, Brian.

A few 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 "do not" sleep with Jennifer. But the fact remains that if Jennifer is sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.

Love, Mom

LESSON OF THE DAY - NEVER LIE TO YOUR MOTHER.
