When my sister-in-law Sheila was going to college my mother and I took care of my nephew Joshua while Sheila commuted to Dayton for classes. The routine was that my brother would drop off Joshua in the morning and he would come to eat lunch with us and then he would pick up Joshua after work. At that time I worked second shift and I would leave home around 3:00 PM but on the days I would be called in early for overtime I would leave at noon.
I was surprised when Sheila called me at work one evening. Nearly every day that week I had been called in for overtime. She knew that I spent a great deal of time with Joshua reading and with other creative diversions. She asked if I could keep Joshua away from the soap operas my mother loved to watch. She told me that she had asked Joshua how his day had been and he said that he and Grandma were "Mad at that damn Jill!" At first, Sheila said she thought that "Jill" was a real person until more questioning revealed that Jill was a character on Mother's favorite soap opera "The Young And The Restless".
Mother was, of course, shocked! She said, "Little pitchers have big ears!" No more soaps for Joshua!
