Mars Bar Bribe

THE only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon ‘quick bout of love making’ with their eight-year-old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony with a Mars Bar and tell him to report on all the street activities.

He began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation:

“There’s a car being towed from the parking lot.

An ambulance just drove by. Looks like the Anderson’s have company. 

Matt’s riding a new bike.

Looks like the Sanders are moving.

Jason is on his skate board.

The Coopers are having a root.”

Startled, his mum and dad shot up in bed! Dad cautiously called out,
 “How do you know that?”

“Jimmy Cooper is standing on his balcony with a Mars Bar.”
