Billie and Tillie were delighted when finally their long wait to adopt a baby
came to an end. The adoption centre called and told them they had a wonderful
Russian baby boy and the couple took him without hesitation.
On the way home from the adoption centre, they stopped by the local college so
they each could enrol in night courses. After they filled out the form, the
registration clerk inquired, "What ever possessed you to study Russian?"
The couple said proudly, "We just adopted a Russian baby and in a year or so
he'll start to talk.
We just want to be able to understand him!"
