Benny’s jaw dropped. Mommy and Daddy did what? He couldn’t say the word out loud but he knew what it meant even at the age of five. What does it mean? He wondered as a million questions suddenly zapped into his curious mind.

I just want to where you found it so I can let him know.”
“It was on the bookshelf, mommy, next to the naughty books.”
