The one in which I discover my low kidnappability score

Me: Hey, could you help me get unplug my phone charger from behind the dresser?


Him: Why do you need it for such a short time?

Me: I don't want my phone to die when I'm gone.

Him: *rolls eyes*

Me: What happens if you try to call me and it's dead?

Him: Then I know your phone died.

Me: How do you know I wasn't kidnapped by gypsies?

Him: That wouldn't happen.

Me: Why not?

Him: Gypsies are very selective, honey.

I wonder what it is about men that makes them so care-less about talking on the phone... Even gypsies probably have cellphones!

Is gypsie a politically correct term? Kidding aside, that was cute. He may have to worry about others though.

I can see you getting along well with the gypsies...

Maybe you should send him a text;

Hi. Gypsies got me. Back some time. Told you so!

PS- the term gypsies actually comes from a medieval blief that they were from Egypt.
Medieval legend had it they were descended from Egyptians who ostracised Mary and Joseph as they sojourned in Egypt to hide from Herod and were cursed to wonder the earth homeless as a result. It was of course, believed that the Jews were cursed the same way.

There are no true Gypsies in England, mainly because a law of 1290 threw out on pain of geath 'The Jews and the Egyptians'

Jews were allowed back in 1657, but the Gypsies never.
