The following is a true story, only names are changed to protect the guilty.
Grandfather used to be visited by Clyde and his wife Penelope, from time to time. They always showed up early, before Grandfather was ready for them and Grandfather had to yell from the bedroom: “I’ll be out in a minute.”
Grandfather decided to remedy that.
So, the next time they showed up early, grandfather yelled from the bedroom as usual but, this time, he came out in his bathrobe.
Grandfather strode into full frontal position before Penelope and, as she squealed “No! No! No!” he flung open his bathrobe, showing her …
His Bermuda shorts and tee shirt.
It worked; they didn’t come early, anymore.
