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