One afternoon after the death of her grandfather, Carol lay huddled on her bed, sobbing forlornly. Her mother sat beside her and asked, "What's the matter, honey?"
"I miss my grandpa, and I miss talking to him about my problems," the girl said. "I know, dear," sympathized her mother. "I miss him too. But can't you talk to me?" Carol shook her head vehemently.
"Why not?" her mother persisted.
"Because you're what we talked about," sobbed Carol.

Watch while I prove it to you. “The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, “Which do you want, son? “The boy takes the quarters and leaves. “What did I tell you?” said the barber. “That kid never learns!” Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store, “Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill? “The boy licked his cone and replied, “Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!”

God bless us all.
