NOTE: My daughter told me that I couldn’t tell anyone this story, therefore, this IS NOT a story about Jill… but of a “different” new college student named Lilly.
Lilly had been away at college for one week. Mom called to check in with her, and this is the weird phone conversation that followed.
Lilly: Did you put a pregnancy test in my silverware drawer?
Lilly: Did you put a pregnancy test in my silverware drawer?!
Mom: NO!!! What are you talking about?!?!
Lilly: I opened the drawer to get a fork, and there was a pregnancy test in there!
Mom: Is it Christina’s?!?! (roommate)
Lilly: No. I asked her. I told her that you probably put it there as a joke.
Mom: That is no joke!!!!!!
Lilly: Then it was probably Gram.
Mom: I SERIOUSLY doubt that Gram would have done that. It’s not very funny!
Lilly: Well, it’s in there.
Mom: (to Shawn) Did you put a pregnancy test in Lilly’s silverware drawer?!
Mom: (to Shawn) Lilly found a pregnancy test in her silverware drawer! (to Lilly) Someone has obviously been in your room! Was it in the box?
Lilly: No. Just in the plastic.
Mom: Well, unless you are taking pregnancy tests all the time, you usually need the directions to figure out how to use them! It’s weird that there are none!
Lilly: I don’t know.
The conversation then turns to homework, a new calculator, and how much money she has in the bank. My wheels are turning the entire time, when finally…
Mom: Is the pregnancy test blue?
Mom: It’s the tester for your water filter pitcher.
Lilly: Oh… That explains it. You can’t tell anyone this story.
Moral to the story: I love that my kid, I mean THIS KID IN THE STORY, is so innocent that she thought there was a pregnancy test in her silverware drawer. When you look at the pictures you might see how the mistake was made.
