A little girl answered the phone in her house and a sales­man said, “Little girl, may I speak to your mother?” The lit­tle girl replied, “She’s busy right now.”

The salesman said, “Oh, OK, how about your father?” The little girl replied that he was busy too, so the salesman asked if she had any older brothers and sisters. She told him she had one brother and one sister. He asked to speak to one of them, but she said that they were busy too. “Wow,” the salesman observed, “everybody seems busy at your house. What are they all busy doing?”

“Shh,” she replied, “they’re all looking for me.”
