“I don’t understand,” Hal said to his wife. “We have two boys, two years apart, both raised in the same household, both exposed to the same things, and the two couldn’t be more different. What are we doing wrong?”
“I’m holding on to the hope that we’re not doing anything wrong,” Judy said. “I just think they have different natures.”
“Well, I just don’t get it,” Hal lamented. “They’re both our sons, so they should be like peas in a pod, not like they are from different species.”
Judy sighed, got a quizzical look on her face, and said, “Hal, do you think it’s possible that one of our boys is adopted?”
“Well, that would certainly address the issue of nature versus nurture,” Hal said.
