We often see children as people who don’t really understand the world as well as us adults.
But sometimes they can be little geniuses who are sharper than you’d think. I think we often underestimate children’s intelligence.
This funny story is a great example of just that. I heard it the first time a few years ago in a different version, but this is definitely the most hilarious one I’ve come across!
I just had to share it with you!
A woman is having an affair while her husband is at work. Then one day, her 7 year old son comes home early from school. As he takes off his backpack, the little boy spots his mom and the strange man, and hides in the bedroom closet to watch what’s going on.
Suddenly, the woman’s husband also comes home. She looks out the window to see him pull up in the driveway and panics. She hastily hides her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.
The little boy says, “It’s dark in here.”
The man whispers back, “Yes, it is.”
“I have a baseball,” the boy says.
“That’s nice,” replies the man.
“Wanna buy it?” the boy asks.
“No, thanks,” says the man.
“My Dad’s outside”, says the boy.
“OK, how much?” the man replies with a sigh.
“$250,” the boy replies.
A few weeks later
A few weeks later, the little boy and the mom’s lover end up in the closet together under the same circumstances.
“It’s dark in here,” says the boy.
“Yes, it is,” the man replies.
“I have a baseball glove,” the boy says.
Remembering last time, the man asks, “How much?”
“$750,” says the boy.
“Fine,” says the man resignedly.
A few days later, the dad says to the boy, “Son, grab your ball and glove. Let’s go outside and throw some pitches.”
The boy says, “I can’t. I sold them.”
The dad asks, “Huh, I see. How much did you sell them for?”
The son says, “$1,000.”
The dad says, “It’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that. That’s way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church so that you can confess.”
They get in the car and go to the church. The dad puts the little boy in the confession booth and closes the door.
The boy says, “It’s dark in here.”
The priest replies, “Don’t start that crap again!”
