A Lot To Be Spankful For

| Children, Grandparents, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

(I work at a grocery store. While ringing up their purchases, I overhear part of a conversation between a mother and her daughter. The girl is probably no more than eight.)

Girl: *pointing at the cigarettes* “Mommy, why do they have smoke things?”

Mother: “Because, some people still smoke.”

Girl: “But Daddy doesn’t smoke anymore, because he almost had a heart attack!”

Mother: “That’s right. And Grandma doesn’t smoke anymore either.”

Girl: “I know, because I told her if she did, I’d spank her!”
