I was helping Joe get into the shower the other day, and he was so confused as to why he had to take his clothes off.
Joe: “But…if I take my underwear off, I’ll be naked.
Me: “Yep, that’s true.”
Joe: “Well…what if we get visitors?”
Me: “I will holler out the door to them that we’ll be out in a minute.”
Joe: “What if the doorbell rings and I have to answer it?”
Me: “I will answer the door since I’m the one with clothes on.”
Joe: “Oh…well, ok. I guess it’ll all work out then.”
Me: “Yep, it will all work out just fine.”
Joe: (grinning) “Well then…Here I go…gettin’ naked…”
I turned the shower on and adjusted the temperature while Joe was taking off his Depends.
The next thing I knew, Joe had opened the bathroom door and was headed out to the kitchen. Dot was sitting at the table eating her Raisin Bran…
Joe: (big grin) “Hi Dot…”
Dot looked over at him and said, “Hi Joe.”
Joe: (with his hands on his hips and swaying from side to side) “Notice anything different about me?”
Dot: “Yeah, you’ve gained some weight. You’re eating too much ice cream.” Then she went right back to eating her Raisin Bran.
Me: “Come on, Joe, it’s time to get in the shower.”
Joe looked so disappointed when he said, “Dot didn’t even notice I was naked.”
Me: “Oh I’m sure she noticed.”
Joe: “She didn’t seem very surprised.”
Me: “Well that’s probably because you weren’t showing her anything that she hadn’t seen before.”
Joe: (laughing) “Yep, you’re right about that.”
He looked around to make sure that no one was listening and quietly said, “We’ve got 4 kids you know…”
(Actually, they only have 3 kids…)
I laughed and said, “Yep, I did know that. How about you get in the shower now?”
Joe: “Oh yeah! Now I remember why I was naked!” And he happily stepped into the shower.
Then the doorbell rang…
