Billy Bob and Peggy Sue finally tied the knot in holy wedlock, despite the fact that both were without jobs back home in Possum Grove, NC. Fortunately, Peggy Sue's parents gave them a room to live in until things got better; or they both got enough feck to move to Charlotte.
Things were fine living in the same house as her parents, except for one thing: the rooms had such thin, uninsulated walls so that sounds easily carried. It inhibited their love-making at bedtime!
Finally, Peggy Sue had a heart-to-heart talk with her Mama; and told her their predictment: "Mama, we can't make no love because we're afraid you and Papa can hear what we're doing."
Mama thought, "Yup. And keeping score."
But Mama said, "Huh, child, I know your problem. Me and Papa had the same problem when we lived with the grandparents when we fust got hitched. But here's what you ought to do. You and Billy Bob keep a-talking about something else while you're doin' the deed. I guarantee, you both will get satisfaction."
So Peggy Sue and Billy Bob decided to try that. After all, they were having no luck nohow and were really itchy.
So the very same night, they started trying this idea out.
PS: "Billy Bob, did you hoe them turnips this morning.?"
BB: "Yeah, I did," while starting.
PS: "Did you do 'em all?"
BB: "Yeah. Yeeahhh."
PS: "And did you prime the well pump like you were supposed ta?"
PS: "Uh...uh...and did you mend the fence okay?"
PS: "How about the barrel? Did you move it like you said?"
BB: "The big brown one that we keep the rainwater in? Puff puff......puff"
PS: "No, the small one with the hoops.....hoops.....Whoops.....Whoops.....WHOOPS!!!"
Mama thought, "Touchdown!"
