MYSTERY

There was once a bride who lived with her mother-in-law and was very fond chick peas.  The bride liked them so much that she would steal some from the kitchen every day to roast and eat in secret.  Before long, half the sack of chick peas was gone and the mother-in-law was angry.
She suspected the bride and mumbled to herself, "I'm certain she's the thief.  She's the only new person in the house."
The mother-in-law was a smart woman, but the young bride was even cleverer.  She knew she was being suspected.
One day, while cleaning the house with her mother-in-law, the bride found a chick pea on the floor.  She picked it up, showed it to her mother-in-law, and said three words that convinced the older woman that she hadn't taken the chick peas.
WHAT DID THE BRIDE SAY???
