Who Says You Can't Buy Love?

I overheard this conversation the other day. I was in my room grading, and my window was open so I could hear my kids playing in the front yard (hubby was out there, too):

Boy: Will you come keep me company while I go to the bathroom?
Girl: No.
Boy: Please?
Girl: I don't want to.
Boy: I've give you two dollars.
Girl: Okay!
Boy: You are the best sister. Of all the sisters, you are the best.
Girl: You are the best brother. I love you.
Boy: I love you, too.

And off they went to the bathroom.

Very cute. But even in the grown-up world you can buy love. Oh believe me. I almost left my husband for a guy I used to date (who happens, now, to be a millionaire). I loved him, but I also loved his money. Shame on me!

Did she get it?

thirty-something: That would be Better off Dead, starring John Cusack.

Um, bathroom company?
At least two dollars will buy a can of Lysol.

LOL 30something.

My children enjoy company in the bathroom, too. But I'm sure that the time is coming quickly when that trip will cost waaayyy more than two dollars!
