Brother, can you spare a dime?

“Mom, I need $25,000.”

Oh, me too.

“Whatcha’ need it for, Squash?”

“There’s a hotel in the Bahamas that has a room for $25,000 a night.  If I had $100,000, we could stay there for four whole nights.”

So glad that he’s mastered some basic mathematical calculations. Now if only he could master keeping track of his nineteen million lunchboxes I’ve had to replace to the tune of $25,000, we’d be in business.

But I digress…

“What’s so special about this hotel that it costs so much to stay there?”

“They have a butler, Mom, and marble bathtubs.”

No one in this family enjoys soaking for hours in a tub more than he.  Except for maybe me.  How I love this wrinkled, pruney, water-logged child o’ mine.

“If you could tell the butler to get anything in this world for you, punkin’, what would it be?

“A cherry soda.”

I think he’s adopted.

Have a nice day.
