Mom and Pop Show: Mom Shops for Things for the Dog

Pop: Okay, how much did you spend?

Mom: Never mind!


Pop: Right around forty-five dollars?


Mom: Right around there.


Pop: No, no “around there”! How much?


Mom: Fifty-four dollars.


Pop: Okay. I regard it as an investment.


Mom (astonished): You do?


Pop: Sure. Now he won’t have to chew all our things. 


(Mom thinks silently: Yeah, as long as we put our things out of his reach….)
