Mom and Pop Have Secret Lives

Listening to a radio feature about the terrible private lives of CIA operatives --

Mom: You see? Things could be worse. What if you were in the CIA?

Pop: How do you know I'm not? How do you know I'm not a hired assassin?

Mom: Right, and how do you know I'm not a wildly successful author? Maybe I've published dozens of novels under a pen name and have millions in royalties stashed away in a Swiss bank account.

Both snort derisively at the delusions of the other.
