Mrs. Gonzalez comes to visit her son Jorge for dinner. Jorge lives with a female roommate, Maria. During the course of the meal, Mama can’t help but notice how pretty Jorge’s roommate is. She had long been suspicious of the relationship between the two, and this made her more curious.
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between her son, Jorge and his roommate than meets the eye. Reading his Mom’s thoughts, Jorge volunteered, “I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Mama, Maria and I are just roommates.”
About a week later, Maria comes to Jorge saying, “Ever since your mother came to dinner, I’ve been unable to find the silver sugar bowl. You don’t suppose she took it, do you?” “Well, I doubt it, but I’ll e-mail her, just to be sure.” So he sends his Mom an email:
I’m not saying that you took the sugar bowl from my house, and I’m not saying that you didn’t take it.
But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Several days later, Jorge receives an email response from his Mama:
I’m not saying that you ‘do’ sleep with Maria, and I’m not saying that you ‘do not’ sleep with her.
But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the sugar bowl by now.
