Want to Buy a Baseball?

baseballA housewife was cheating on her husband while he is at work, but she was not aware that her 9 year old son was hiding in the closet. Her husband came home unexpectedly, so she hid her lover in the closet.
As if making casual small talk, the boy says, “Dark in here.”
“Yes it is,” replied the man
“I have a baseball,” said the boy
Trying to ignore the kid, he muttered, “That’s nice.”
“Want to buy it?”
Annoyed, the man said, “No, thanks.”
In an almost melodic tone, the boy mentioned, “My dad’s outside.”
Realizing his situation, the man relented, “OK, how much?”
Without a hint of compassion, the boy said, “$250.”
A few weeks later, it happens again. The boy and the mom’s lover are in the closet together.
“Dark in here,” said the boy.
“Yes, it is,” said the man.
“I have a baseball glove. Want to buy it?”
Not learning from the last time he said, “No, thanks.”
In a menacing voice the boy said, “I’ll tell.”
“How much?” the man sighed.
“$750.”
The man winced, “Fine.”
It was a few days later the father said to the boy, “Grab your glove. We’ll go outside and toss that baseball!”
The boy blurted, “I can’t. I sold them.”
The father asked, “How much did you sell them for?”
The son says, “$1,000,” and shows his father the money.
The father shouted, “That’s terrible to over-charge your friends like that! That is way more than those two things are worth! I’m going to take you to church and you can tell the priest in confession!”
They go to church and the father alerted the priest and made the little boy sit in the confession booth before closing the door.
The boy said, “Dark in here.”
The priest said, “Don’t start that shit again.”
