Are you smarter than an 8-year-old?
The only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon “quickie” with their
8-year-old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony
with a popsicle and tell him to report on all the neighborhood activities.

There’s a car being towed from the parking lot,” he shouted.  th
He began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation.
“An ambulance just drove by!”
“Looks like the Anderson’s have company!”
“Matt’s riding a new bike!”

“Looks like the Sanders are moving!”

“Jason is on his skateboard!”
“The Coopers are having sex!!”

Startled, his mother and dad shot up in bed. Dad cautiously
called out,  “How do you know they’re having sex?”
“Jimmy Cooper is standing on his balcony with a popsicle.”
Thanks, Carla

    I walked in on my parents once when I was 7 or 8. It was pretty funny. But then we didn’t have a balcony, nor was I given a popsicle.
