My wife Susan and I had been married just over a year. We lived next door to her parents (I know, believe me, I know…).
I was working shifts and often at home during the day. Susan was working standard days and usually out. Susan’s best friend Lynne would often pop in for a coffee with me when walking her dog. Susan’s mum had (unfounded) suspicions about this…
On this occasion, the sun was shining so we had our coffee sitting on the lawn out back. We could hear Susan’s parents chatting as they worked in their garden on the other side of the tall hedge.
After a little while Lynne’s dog, Jess, got bored of all this sitting around and started to mess around. Resulting in Lynne screaming at the top of her voice:
“GET YOUR TONGUE OUT OF MY EAR!”
Next door went totally silent……….
A few weeks later:
Another coffee visit. Susan arrives just after Lynne has gone. Susan’s mum makes a point of telling her this on the doorstep. Susan comes into the house to discover me in the bedroom pulling my trousers on…
There is actually a perfectly innocent explanation for this – can anyone guess what it is in the comments?
