A few years ago, a mother and father decided they needed a break, so they wanted to head out for a night on the town. They called their most trusted babysitter. When the babysitter arrived, the two children were already fast asleep in bed. So it was a pretty easy job.
Later that night, the babysitter got bored and went to watch TV, but she couldn't watch it downstairs because they did not have cable for the TV. So she called the parents and asked them if she could watch TV in the parents' room. Of course, the parents said, but the babysitter had one final request... she asked if she could cover up the statue outside the bedroom window with a blanket, because it made her nervous.
That was the last they ever heard of the babysitter.
When the parents got home the children were still there but not the Babysitter...
