Unable to afford a honeymoon, Peter and Madeline return to Peter’s parents’ house.
In the morning, Stevie, Peter’s little brother, is having breakfast.
“Are Peter and Madeline up yet?” he asks his mother.
“I think I know why,” says Stevie.
“Don’t you start,” says his mother. “Go to school.”
At lunch, Stevie comes home and asks again whether Peter and Madeline are up.
“I think I know why,” says Stevie again.
“Never mind what you think you know. Take your lunch and get back to school,” his mother says.
After school, Stevie asks again whether Peter and Madeline have emerged.
“I think I know why,” Stevie says.
“Fine,” says his mother. “What do you think is going on?”
“Last night Peter came to my room for the Vaseline and I gave him my airplane glue.”
