Charlie wrote about his experience as a kid growing up in the American south and planting peanuts. Because peanuts are tubers that grow on the roots beneath the ground, you cannot see how well they’re developing. So being an impatient kid, he decided to dig them up to see how they were doing. Well, they were doing fine. So he shoveled them back into the hole and tamped the ground firm. A month or so later, he went to harvest them. How disappointed he was. Many of the peanuts had died and the rest were shriveled and misshapen.

That’s how it is with pre-marital sex, Charlie wrote. In fact, that’s a picture of the consequences that follow virtually every impatient act.
