Me and my big mouth

My brother in law called this evening a bit bummed. As most kids are want to do as soon as you get on the phone they get louder and Maggie was doing her juvenile duty.

What I heard my brother in law say was,"My landlord stopped by today." Knowing he and his wife are in tight with their landlord I jokingly responded,"I have a pond, we can always hide the body".

His response was a bit strained and befuddled. After a few more seconds of conversation I had realized what he had said was,"My landlord passed this morning."
