Smarter Than The Average Twelve Year Old

I was cleaning up the dishes after tonight's dinner, when the doorbell rang.

I walked over to the door and opened it. No one was there.

I opened the screen door and peeked out. A kid, probably eleven or twelve years old, was about twenty feet away from me, striding quickly away from our house with his dog.

I called after him, "Can I help you?"

He turned and shouted, "I didn't ring your doorbell," to which I replied, "Who said anything about a doorbell?"

"I don't know," he said, and walked off.

Typical anti-youth hate speech.

For shame, Splotch.

Some Guy said...

Ah, Ding-Dong-Ditch. I should play more often.

But what if he had said, "I didn't beam down from a flying craft and ring your doorbell with one of my tentacles." How would you have felt then?
