John invited his mother over for dinner. During the meal, his mother
couldn't help noticing how beautiful John's roommate was. She had long been
suspicious of a relationship between John 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 John and theroommate than met the eye.
Reading his mom's thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be
thinking, but I assure you, Julie and I are just roommates."

About a week later, Julie came to John 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?" John said, "Well, I
doubt it, but I'll write her a letter 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 'did not' take a gravy ladle. But the fact
remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner."

Several days later,

John received a letter from his mother which read:

"Dear Son, I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Julie, and I'm not
saying that you 'do not' sleep with Julie. But the fact remains that if she
was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by

Love, Mom
