The talk

We had dinner last night with a couple that has kids our kids' age. As usual, conversation turned to how the kids are doing, latest tips on kid-rearing, that sort of thing. My friend turned to me and in a hushed voice told me that he and his oldest son had had "the talk". His son is 12, so I asked, "The talk? The talk about sex?". "No!" he said, "he knows all about that already. The talk about not downloading mp3s".
