“Be Careful Who You Let Whisper”
A little boy is lying in bed, busting to go to the toilet.
So he gets out of bed, runs downstairs into the living room, and finds his mother chatting with a bunch of her friends.
"MOM," the boy yells at the top of his voice, "I GOTTA PEE! I GOTTA PEE!"
Well, needless to say, the mother is mortified and scolds the young boy. "Dominic, we do NOT shout that kind of language in front of mommy's guests! Next time, just say 'whisper', okay?"
The little boy nods sheepishly. His mom takes him to the bathroom and tucks him back into bed.
The next night, little Dominic is busting to go to the toilet again.
So he gets out of bed, runs downstairs into the living room, and there is his mother, having a glass of wine with her friends.
"Mom! I gotta whisper, I gotta whisper!"
His mother excuses herself and takes Dominic to the bathroom, smiling at her son's innocent mistake, but relieved that he was at least more discreet than last time. She takes Dominic back upstairs and tucks him into bed. "Well done, sweetie," she says, kissing him goodnight, "That was more polite."
A few nights go by and the little boy is busting to go to the toilet again.
So he gets out of bed, runs downstairs into the living room, and there is his dad watching TV.
"Dad!" Dominic says softly, "I gotta whisper, I gotta whisper!"
"Aw, is that so, little buddy?" says dad, his eyes fixed on the television. "Come on over here and whisper in daddy's ear."
