But she did. When junior kept whining for her to let him have a candy bar she explained repeatedly that it was almost lunch time and that It wasn't good for little boys to eat sweets before a meal By the time she had patiently explained this to junior three times and he was still whining for the candy bar, I thought she might use an old - fashioned phrase like "You can't have it and that's that," or an even more uninhibited retort such as "Stop whining or I'm going to paddle you as soon as we get home," but she didn t She kept her tone of sweet reasonableness when junior started begging to stop by and see Billy on his way home, "But Billy has a cold, darling" jun ior's mother kept repeating.
