I’m Smarter Than I Look


The Boy runs into my bedroom & jumps under the blankets. Slowly, an alien action figure appears from under the blankets & says in an alien voice: “You are being hypnotized. Do whatever The Boy tells you to.”

Me: “Oh, hey Mr. Alien. Could you tell Sam that’s not going to work?”

The Alien, disappearing under the blankets: “It didn’t work. She’s not hypnotized.”

The Boy: “Darn it. She’s smarter than she looks.”
