The watch

Johnny was in the playground, with his friend Jimmy, when he noticed the brand new shiny watch Jimmy was wearing.

“Did you get that for your birthday?” he asked.

“Nope,” Jimmy replied.

“Well, did you get it for Christmas then?” Johnny asked.


“You didn't steal it did you?”

“No,” said Jimmy. “I went into Mom and Dad's bedroom the other night when they were on the job. Dad gave me his watch to get rid of me.”

Johnny was extremely impressed with this idea, and extremely jealous of Jimmy's new watch. He vowed to get one for himself. That night he waited outside his parents' room until he heard the unmistakable noises of lovemaking.

Johnny swung the door wide open and boldly strode into the bedroom. His father, caught in mid stroke, turned and asked him angrily, “What do you want now?”

“I wanna watch,” Johnny replied.

“Well, stand in the corner and keep quiet then,” said his father.
