I don't know the Cab Number!!

Those were the days when I was travelling for work. I had mom at home to help me with the kids. One evening, the dad and son duo went to a friend's place for their wedding anniversary dinner. 

Important things spark in my son's brain out of blue. The next day while he was doing his homework, he lifts his head and asks: "ammamma, why did Charan celebrate a wedding anniversary?"
Mom: Because that was the day he got married and they celebrated the occasion. 
Son: Why does he need a wife?
Mom: Because he needs someone to cook for him, take care of his needs and have company at home
Son: Ammamma, I won't marry; I don't need a wife. For me, you are there or my mom is there.
Mom: I will go back to India and your mom will live with your dad. So, if you get a job in another city, then we won't be there with you.
After a few minutes pause...
Son: Ammamma, I will work in New York City
Mom: Ok fine, do your home work now
Son: Ammamma, I don't know the cab number.
Mom: Why do you need the cab number?
Son: Then how can I show New York Downtown to my wife???
Mom: Ehhhh? What????


Happy Weekend guys!!!

P.S: My son was 7 at that time. :)

*Ammamma = Grandma

  14. F in F,

    Please give my love to him. Children do come out with such humour but if you think over it they say what is true. How old is he now? Please do let me know his DoB so I can send him an e-card. My id is niceguy251@gmail.com.

    Take care
