We don’t have any little grandchildren now – they have all grown up and become wise in the ways of the world. However at times we’ve had to field some of the various curly questions they came up with when they were tiny.
So for your enjoyment here is a variation on an old one

A six-year-old girl went to her Grandad who was working in the garden and asked him ‘Grandad what is couple se’x’
The grandfather was surprised that she would ask such a question but decided 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 proceeeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilties that go with it.
When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement.
Seeing the look on her face the grandfather asked her ‘Why did you ask this question sweetheart?’
The little girl replied
‘Well Grandma says to tell you – that dinner will be ready in just a couple of secs’
