This is only marginally related to travel (it contains the phrase driver’s license), but most of my readers love the kind of word play that drives this joke.

A mother is driving her little girl to her friend’s house for a playdate. “Mummy,” the little girl asks, “how old are you?”

“Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,” the mother replied. “It’s not polite.”

“OK,” the little girl says, “What colour was your hair 2 years ago?”

“Now really,” the mother says, “those are personal questions and are really none of your business.”

Undaunted, the little girl asks, “Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?”

“That’s enough questions, young lady! Honestly!” The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play.

“My Mum won’t tell me anything about her,” the little girl complains to her friend.

“Well,” says the friend, “all you need to do is look at her driver’s license. It’s like a report card; it has everything on it.”

Later that night the little girl says to her mother, “I know how old you are. You are 32.”

The mother is surprised and asks, “How did you find that out?”

“I also know that you used to have brown hair.”

The mother is past surprised and is now shocked. “How in Heaven’s name did you find that out?”

“And,” the little girl says triumphantly, “I know why you and daddy got a divorce.”

“Oh, really?’ the mother says. “Why?”

“Because on your driver’s license it says you got an F in sex.”
