**Rrriiiiinnnnggg, rrriiiinnnngg,**

**’Hello?’**


**’Hi honey.**
**This is Daddy.**
**Is Mommy near the phone?’**


**’No, Daddy.**
**She’s upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Dave.’**

**After a brief pause,**


**Daddy says,**

**’But honey, you haven’t got an Uncle Dave.’**

*’Oh yes I do, and he’s upstairs in the room with Mommy,**

**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 her head on the dresser**
**And now she isn’t moving at all!’**

**’Oh my God!!!  What about your Uncle Dave?’**
**’He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too.**

**He was all scared and he jumped out of the back window**
**And into the swimming pool.**
**But I guess he didn’t 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?  ………..**

**Is this 486-5731?’*

**No, I think you have the wrong number………*
