Sister and Will have gone to visit Great-Grandma Mary this weekend as she is not feeling so well. Will had some work to do before they left so Sis and I were in charge of packing. We put in clothes and toothbrushes, a few small toys and other sundry items. Then as an afterthought almost, Sister ran to get her piggy bank and began dumping change into her purse.
“I’m going to take a little money….just in case we need it. ‘Cause money is really popular.” (She paused then added matter-of-factly.) “It’s even more popular than horses.”
Indeed. Maybe, that’s what’s wrong with the world. Money is more popular than horses.
