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

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

 **After a brief pause,**

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

 **'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 Gabe?'**

 **'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........*
