Little Lucy loved sucking her thumb so much. She was now five years old but hadn't stopped the bad habit. With an effort to stop her from this bad practice, Lucy's mother lied to her that her stomach will swell and will finally burst if she doesn't stop the habit. The lie scared little Lucy that she actually stopped the habit immediately. A month later, expectant Mrs. Blecker pays them a visit. When Lucy comes in to greet her she stops first to stare at Mrs. Blecker, then goes ahead with her greeting. Mrs. Blecker notices the hesitation and asks, "Hi, Lucy! I guess you are wondering where I've been, aren't you?" The little girl answers, "Not exactly, Mrs. Blecker, I know what you've been doing and you better stop it fast."
