Rrriiiiinnnnggg, rrriiiinnnngg, ‘Hello?’ ‘Hi Honey. This is Daddy. Is Mommy near the Phone? ‘.

‘No, Daddy. She’s upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Gabe.’

After a brief pause, Daddy says, ‘but Honey, you don’t have an Uncle Gabe.’

‘Oh Yes I do, and He’s upstairs with Mommy in the room, right now.’

Brief Pause.

‘Uh, okay then, this is what I Want You to do. Put the phone down on the Table, Run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout to Mommy that. Daddy’s car just pulled into the driveway. ‘.

‘Okay, Daddy, Just a minute.’

A few minutes later the Little Girl comes back to the Phone…’I did it, Daddy.’

‘And what happened, honey?’

‘Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming. Then she tripped over the rug, hit on her head the dresser and now she is not at all Moving!’

‘Oh my God!!! What about your Uncle Gabe? ‘.

‘He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too.

He was all scared and jumped out of the back window he and into the swimming pool. But I guess he did not know that you took out the water last week to clean it.

He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he’s dead.’

Long Pause.
Longer Pause.
Even Longer Pause.

Then Daddy says, ‘Swimming pool? (Confused) Is this 486-5731?
