DROP A DIME

You've heard the gangsta saying, "I'm gonna drop a dime on that guy."

Here's a new twist on dropping a dime.

Phone rings a few moments ago.

Me: Hello

Wife: I don't want to get you upset but Gracie just swallowed a dime in the grocery store.

Me: Well, that's one way to save money. What did she do that for?

Wife obviously irritated: Because she did....

Me: Oh. Call her mom. The dime has to be barfed up.

Wife: Really?

Me: Really.

I love this kid, our little Gracie. She's like her papa: Learning the hard way becomes a way of life. Bet Gracie never puts money in her mouth again.

Did we all sit around while she pooped to here that old familiar metallic sound drop?

Barfed up? It's a dime, Dad! There's easier ways to convince her not to do that again, like lots of worrying.
