Scene: Evening in a typical suburban living room. Mother is enjoying a glass of wine, watching Extreme Home Makeover with the kids (box of Kleenex poised at the ready on a nearby endtable) while Father is on shift at the firestation.
Kids and dog lay strewn about the floor, cozy in front of a glowing fireplace as the evening wears on and everyone enjoys doing nothing after a very busy weekend.
The programming breaks for commercials.
A Jack in the Box ad comes on the TV. Jack is visiting his aging mother one morning in her kitchen as she clips coupons. He tells her he didn't know she still clipped coupons and they exchange pleasantries over hot cups of coffee. It's a typical scene until the father pokes his head through the doorway and tells his wife she better call the doctor, "It's been more than 4 hours." He says hello to his son and closes the door at which time Jack announces that he'd better leave.
Child #1: Snicker, snicker, snicker.
Mother: Shoots child serious glance with raised eyebrows - a warning that he had better not even go there.
Child #2: What's so funny?
Mother: Evil stink eye in child #1's direction saying, "You better not," with her eyeballs.
Child #2: Whaaaaaat? I don't get it!
Child #1: (In his best and admittedly really good male radio commercial voice) If you experience an erection for more than 4 hours...
Child #2: Laughing his head off.
Mother: Good lord.
Child #3: Still laying under the coffee table completely oblivious to child #1 and child #2's conversation, which is a good thing.
A very good thing. Mother didn't feel like explaining erections to a 6 year old girl.
Mother's Note to Self: Why do these things always happen when father is at work?
