The shared secret I seem to have forgotten about

I sit on the couch with Alice and Jane. I am reading one of our favourite books: Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel.

I get to the part where Toad is afraid to come out of the water because he doesn't want the other animals to laugh at his bathing suit.

A snake crawled out of the grass.  "If Toad looks funny in his bathing suit," said the snake, "then I, for one, want to see him."

Alice giggles. She leans in close to my ear and whispers, "Dad, can you read the snake like you-know-what?"

The girls are fighting. Maybe not fighting-fighting, but there is a debate. I cannot hear the subject. I enter the room.
