**Rrriiiiinnnnggg, rrriiiinnnngg,**


**'Hello?'**




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


**'No, Daddy.**
**She's upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul.'**



**After a brief pause,**


**Daddy says,**
**'But honey, you haven't got an Uncle Paul.'**



**'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 Paul?'**


**'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.......*
