Franny is fundraising for her trip to Japan next spring. I came home and saw two giant boxes of candy bars on the table.
“How’s it going? How much are these going for?” I asked.
“Two dollars, and I’ve sold a bunch already,” she said.
“I’ve already made $33!”
“Hmm, okay.” I decided to let that one go. “I have advice for you. As we say in the drug dealing business, ‘Don’t get high on your own supply.”
“Okay, Mom,” she said, laughing.
Later I was in my room and I heard her talking to P.
“I’m hungry, I really want to eat these candy bars,” Franny said.
“Don’t do it,” P. said.
“Yeah, it’s like Mom said earlier: Don’t drink your drugs.”
