The Lover

A woman takes a lover during the day, while her husband is at work. Her nine year old son comes home unexpectedly, so she puts him in the closet and shuts the door. Her husband also comes home, so she puts her lover in the closet, with the little boy.

The little boy says, "Dark in here."

The man says, "Yes, it is."

Boy - "I have a a baseball."

Man - "That's nice."

Boy - "Want to buy it?"

Man - "No, thanks."

Boy - "My Dad's outside."

Man - "Okay, how much?"

Boy - "$250.00"

In the Next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.

Boy- "Dark in here."

Man - "Yes, it is."

Boy - "I have a baseball glove."

The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, "How much?"

Boy - "$750.00."

Man - "Fine."

A few days later, the father says to the boy, "Grab your glove. Let's go outside and toss the baseball back and forth."

The boys says, "I can't! I sold them."

The father asks, "How much did you sell them for?"

Boy - "$1,000.00."

The father says, "That's terrible to overcharge your friends like that. That is way more than those two things cost. I'm going to take you to church and make you confess."

The father takes the little boy into the church, makes him sit in the confessional booth, and closes the door."

The boys says, "Dark in here."

The priest says, "Don't start that crap again!"
