After sending our son away to college, he would too often call up asking for money. One time when he called my husband answered,
“Sure we will send you money”, he said, “And I also noticed that you left your Physics book here, should we send that also?”
“Uh, oh yeah, OK”, son responded.
I asked him afterward how much money he want.
“$1,100”, he said.
When I gave my husband a surprised look, he explained,
“Don’t worry darling, I taped a $100 check on the cover, and the other $1000 check inside the cover!”
