Little Johnny's big brother had just gotten married and spent his first
wedding night with his parents. In the morning, his mother got up and
prepared a lovely breakfast including freshly cut flowers from her
garden and gourmet food.
She went to the bottom the stairs and called everyone to come down to
breakfast. Everyone came down, except the newlyweds. After a long wait,
the family ate without them. The mother said, "I wonder why they never
came down to eat?"
Little Johnny said, "Mommy, I think..."
"Oh, shut up. I don't want to hear what you think!" said his mother, not
wanting to hear any inappropriate comments from the eight-year-old.
At lunch time, the mother again prepared a wonderful spread and again
called the young couple to eat. Five minutes went by and she called
again. After another long wait, the family proceeded to eat.
As she was cleaning the table, she once again said, "I wonder why they
never came down to eat? Once again, Little Johnny started to speak, but
mother immediately shut him up.
At dinner the same thing happened. After the meal, mother once again
questioned why they had not come down to eat all day. Little Johnny once
again said, "Mommy I think..."
"Well, what is it that you think?" asked his mother rather testily.
"I think that when my big brother came down to get the Vaseline last
night, he got my model airplane glue instead!"
