A friend sent me this. This isn't one of those internet rumors - this actually happened!
[UPDATE: Whoops!! Yes, it IS an internet rumor. Oh well, still funny...]
So today a friend (Steve) told me about this....
Steve's friend called him, distraught, because her 20 year-old son who has Down's Syndrome called her at work and said "Momma! I caught a troll! I caught a troll!" The young man has always had a very active imagination so she didn't think a lot about it. She told him that was nice and that he could tell her all about it when she got home.
When she got home her son was STILL going on and on about the troll he'd caught. He took her into the bedroom and opened the closet door and there was... A WOMAN. A DWARF WOMAN.
She apparently was selling something door-to-door and the young man with Down's thought she was a troll.
I don't know if there will be charges filed. Whether there is or not, can you imagine how horrifying this experience must have been for this woman?! OHMYGOODNESS!
