Saturday Smile

Several weeks after Christmas, I stopped by my sister's house
and my 7 year old nephew greeted me with,
"Thanks for the Sea Scout Signal Whistle you gave me for Christmas!
It's the best presentI ever got."

"That's great, Did you learn how to pipe any signals on it ?"
"Oh, I don't play with it," the little guy said.
"My mom gives me a dollar a day not to blow it during the day
and my dad gives me five dollars a week not to blow it at night."
