A man and woman got married and had a little boy who was very healthy,
but as he got older his parents noticed that he never spoke.

This concerned his parents greatly. They took their son to several
doctors who ran series of tests and told them that the boy was perfectly
healthy but would probably never speak.

Resigned, the parent took their son home and did everything in their power
to keep him happy.  One night seven years later while eating dinner, the
little boy looked up from his plate and said in a clear voice, "These peas are cold."

Overjoyed, his parents celebrated and hugged and kissed him.  "Oh," they said.
"We’re so happy. We thought you couldn't speak.  Why haven't you spoken until now?"

The boy looked at his parents and said, "Well up until these peas,
everything’s been fine."
