I just got this email - I thought I'd give you all a giggle:

Brian Hester invited his mother over for dinner. During the course of
> the meal, Brian's mother couldn't help but keep noticing how
beautiful
> Brian's roommate, Stephanie, was. Mrs. Hester had long been
suspicious
> of a relationship between Brian and Stephanie, and this had only made
>her more curious. Over the course of the evening, while watching the
>two react, Mrs. Hester started to wonder if there was more between
>Brian and Stephanie than met the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts,
>Brian volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you
>Stephanie and I are just roommates."
> About a week later, Stephanie came to Brian saying, "Ever since your
>mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the beautiful silver
>gravy ! ! ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?" Brian said,
>"Well, I doubt it, but I'll send her a e-mail just to be sure." So he
>sat down and wrote: Dear Mother: I'm not saying that you "did" take
>the gravy ladle from the house, I'm not saying that you "did not"
take
> the gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever
> since you were here for dinner.
> Love, Brian
> Several days later, Brian received a letter from his mother that
read:
> Dear Son:
>
> I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Stephanie, and I'm not saying
> that you "do not" sleep with Stephanie. But the fact remains that if
> she was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle
> by now.
> Love, Mom

It's that special "mother" gene that isn't fully developed until you have children of your own. It gives them that special "I know what my kids are doing" seventh sense that only moms have.
