GRANDFATHER: Here’s a card from me. Happy birthday.

SON: Thanks, grandpa.

MOTHER: Read it aloud!

SON: It says, “May all your dreams come true,” and on the inside it says, “To my dreamcome- true grandson.”

FATHER: That’s a nice card.

SON: And grandpa wrote, “Dear Henry, happy birthday, love Grandpa.” And there’s a check for nine dollars and thirteen cents. Why that number, Grandpa?

GRANDFATHER: That’s how old you are!

SON: I’m twelve.

GRANDFATHER: Chocolate whip frame?

FATHER: Okay, time for grandpa to take a nap.
