An 8-year-old girl, at her grandparents house for Thanksgiving, went to her grandfather, who was sitting in his recliner in the living talking with the rest of the family, and asked him, "Grandfather, what is couple sex?" He was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she's old enough to know to ask the question, then she's old enough to get a straight answer. Steeling himself to leave nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities of intercourse. When he finished explaining, the girl looked at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement. Seeing the look on her face, he asked her, "Tell me, sweetie, why did you ask this question?" The little girl replied, "Grandma told me to come out and tell everyone that dinner will be ready in just a couple secs.
