Funny Short Stories For Adults about Kids
A Father Learns that His Daughter Can Predict the Future, then Panics
This funny short story begins in the suburbs of Houston Texas.
One day, around 7:30pm, a father put his three-year-old daughter to bed. As he did every other night, he told her a story, and then listened to her say her prayers.
That day, his daughter ended her prayers by saying,
“God bless mommy, God bless daddy, God bless grandma, and goodbye grandpa.”
Upon hearing this, father said, “why did you say goodbye grandpa?”
The little girl replied, “I don’t know daddy, It just seemed like the thing to do.”
The next day grandpa died. Father thought it was a strange coincidence.
A few months later, father put the girl to bed as usual and listened to her prayers.
This time, the girl ended her prayers by saying,
“God bless mommy, God bless daddy and goodbye grandma.”
The next day, the grandmother died.
“My gosh,” thought father, “this kid is in contact with the other side.”
Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed, the dad heard her say,
“God bless mommy and goodbye daddy.”
He practically went into shock. He couldn’t sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office. He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch sent in, and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight, that he would be OK. He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day, he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived. He breathed a sign of relief and went home.
When he got home, his wife said,
“I’ve never seen you work so late. What’s the matter?”
He said, “I don’t want to talk about it. I’ve just had the worst day of my life.”
She replied, “You think you had a bad day, you’ll never believe what happened to me.
This morning the mailman dropped dead on our porch!”
