It was pouring down with rain and all the prostitutes were standing under awnings to try and keep themselves dry, instead of standing out on the street corners.
“Mom”, the boy asked, “what are all those women doing?”
“They are all waiting for their husbands to get off work”, his mother replied after a bit of quick thinking.
The taxi driver turned around and said, “Geez lady, why don’t you tell him the truth? They’re hookers, boy! They have sex with men for money”.
The little boy’s eyes got wide and he said, “Is that true Mom?”
His mother, glaring hard at the taxi driver, had no option but to answer “Yes”.
After a few minutes, the boy asked, “Mom, if those women have babies, what happens to them?”
She replied, “Most of them become taxi drivers”.
