|Don't Lie to Your Mother|

Shane invited his mother over for dinner. During the meal his mother couldn't help noticing how beautiful Shane's roommate was. She had long been suspicious of a relationship between Shane and his roommate and this 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 Shane and the roommate than met the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, Shane volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Kerry and I are just rommates."
About a week later, Kerry came to Shane and said, "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? " Shane said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her a email just to be sure."
So he sat down and wrote: "Dear Mother, I'm not saying you did take a gravy ladle from my house, and I'm not saying you didn't take a gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner."
Later in the day Shane received an email from his mother which read: "Dear Son, I'm not saying that you do sleep with Kerry, and I'm not saying that you do not sleep with Kerry. But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now. Love, Mom"
