The Tooth Fairy, The Easter Bunny and Other Such Things

A father asked his 10-year old son 'Do you know about the birds and the bees?'

'I don't want to know' the child said, bursting into tears. 'Please promise me you won't tell me.'

Confused, the father asked 'Why, what's wrong?'

The boy sobbed 'When I was six, I got the 'There's no Easter Bunny' speech.'

'At seven, I got the 'There's no Tooth Fairy' speech.'

When I was eight, you hit me with the 'There's no Santa' speech.'

'If you're going to tell me that grown-ups don't root, I'll have nothing left to live for.'
