A husband and wife decided
they needed to use code to indicate that they wanted to
have some hanky pakny without letting their children in
on it. They decided on the word Typewriter.
One day the husband told his
five year old daughter, "Go tell your mommy that daddy
needs to type a letter." The child told her mother
what her dad said and her mom responded, "Tell your
daddy that he can't type a letter right now because there
is a red ribbon in the typewriter." The child went
back to tell her father what mommy said.
A few days later the mom told
the daughter, "Tell daddy that he can type that letter
now." The child told her father, returned to her mother
and announced, "Daddy said never mind with the typewriter,
he already wrote the letter by hand."
