Thinking... is a BAD idea

Mia: I have a joke to tell you...

Me: Mia, do you have your hands in your pants?

Mia: Yes... but I have something to tell you.

Me: Well, get your hands out of your pants, it's gross.

Mia: But it helps me think, Mom.

Me: Well you can try to think with your hands in your back pockets instead.

Mia: Mom, it doesn't work. Look, (Hands in pockets) I'm not thinking.

Me: I'm sorry. I don't want you doing that anymore.

Mia: But how am I going to think?

Me: Well, you will just have to think of some other way to think.

Daddy for the other room: How about you stick your hands in your pants and think of another way to think.
