Dad: "Mojo, I thought we weren't going to mention the new laptop."
Mojo: "?" (tilts head to one side and furrows brow).
Dad: "You know, it's a need-to-know basis and all that."
Mojo: "Well she was going to find out sometime. Besides, I thought you said it's an essential business tool, an 'investment in your personal productivity.' Huh?"
Dad: "Yes, but....I wasn't going to mention it just yet."
Mojo: "So what's with all the secrecy? Is it 'cos you're a spy?"
Dad: "I'm not a spy, Mojo."
Mojo: "My friends say you're a spy."
Dad: "Well, I'm not. I'm a writer."
Mojo: "You're a writer?" (looks puzzled). "So how come your typing's so bad?"
Dad: "I'll ignore that."
Mojo: "So, do you write spy novels or something?"
Dad: "No, of course not."
Mojo: "Hmmm. I still don't understand. Why all the secrecy then?"
Dad: "Oh, never mind."
