    I got this in an email and thought it's pretty cute:

    Why Parents Drink

    A father passing by his son's bedroom was
    astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything
    was picked up. Then he saw an

    Envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was
    addressed to 'Dad.'

    With the worst premonition he opened the envelope

    trembling hands and read the letter.

    Dear Dad:

    It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I
    had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid
    a scene with Mom and you.

    I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so

    But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her
    piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that
    she is much older than I am. But it' s not only the
    passion...Dad she's pregnant.

    Stacy said that we will be very happy.

    She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood
    for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more

    Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't
    really hurt anyone.

    We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the
    other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.

    In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure
    for AIDS

    so Stacy can get better. She deserves it.

    Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself.

    Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you

    to know your grandchildren.

    Love, Your Son John

    PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over
    at Tommy's house.

    I Just wanted to remind you that there are
    worse things in life than the Report card that's in my center
    desk drawer.

    I love you.

    Call me when it's safe to come home...

    I used that tactic on my DH last night... told him I wanted a camel. Then I said just kidding, only a zebra. Then it was ... just kidding I only want to have another baby. [​IMG]

    Well, once the EMT's got my heart going again I think I'd have to kill that kid.
