Thumb sucking, revisited.

Two little boys are sitting in the living room, watching TV with their parents. The mother looks over at the father with a wink and a nod toward upstairs. The father "gets" the message, and they both get up and head towards the stairs.

The mother turns back to the 2 boys and says,"we're going upstairs for a minute. You two stay down here and watch TV, we'll be right back, Okay?".

The two boys nodded OK. So the parents take off upstairs.

The oldest of the 2 boys is old enough to know what's going on now, and gets up and tip toes upstairs. At the top of the stairs, he peeks into his mom and dad's bedroom and shakes his head. He goes back downstairs to his little brother.

"Come with me", he says, and the 2 little boys tip toe back up the stairs. Halfway up the older boy turns to his brother and says "now I want you to keep in mind. This is the same woman who used to bust our ass for sucking our thumb."
