A Jack Production
You live with your 15-year old son, Rob. Rob is a good student, an athlete, active in the extracurricular activities and in the community. While he occasionally gets into trouble, you haven't used spanking (or any type of physical punishment) since before he reached his teens. His mistakes are usually careless, and he has never been mean spirited or especially immature. It's not that you ever said you weren't going to spank him anymore, it just seemed there were other ways to get the results you wanted.
Tonight, the two of you are at the dinner table, and Rob seems a bit uncomfortable. Finally he clears his throat.
"I have to tell you that my girl friend is pregnant."
Considering that you were born to teenage parents, that Rob knows how you feel about it, and that you actually thought he was a virgin, you're more upset than is easily described. You don't know what to say, and you honestly feel like you're chocking.
"Oh my gosh!" he exclaims, between guffaws. "You were turning magenta! April fools!"
"That was last week," you remind him.
"Yeah, that's why I knew I'd get you."
How will you demonstrate your appreciation of his sense of humor?
