Conversation with Peter
Me: Molly needs braces.
Me: Yep, they’re going to cost six thousand dollars.
Peter: I’m sure Molly would understand if you told her we couldn’t afford the gold ones.
Me: That’s the price for plain-old, normal, everyday ones.
Peter: You’ve still got that old guitar right?
Me: Yes, why?
Peter: You may need to do some busking to supplement our income.
Me: I totally could. I know Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley.
Peter: I know I’ve heard it. On second thoughts maybe busking isn’t such a good idea. I don’t think people would appreciate your brand of music.
Me: Their loss
Peter: We should probably make sure we give the family really good gifts this Christmas.
Peter: Because we may need to sell the house and go live with one of them.
