Beetles mating. It happens every spring on the back patio.

Gracie: Papa look! Two bugs are hooked together. What are they doing?

Oh boy, I thought. Here we go. Second thought. .. humm, that not my job. It's a job for Gracie's mom. Who better to start the discussion (or most likely continue as it's pretty clear Grace has already heard a large part of the Birds and the Bees story).

Okay, not my job. Now what do I say?

Me: Well Grace, one of the beetles got into a wreck and the other beetle is towing it back to the shop to get it fixed.

How's that for thinking on my feet?

ROTFLMAO! Bob, you have me gasping for air here....That was too funny! So I take it that when you and the misses got it on that one of you was the tow-truck?

Fox: Better to be tow than to be towed, my friend.
