Get That Nickel, Player

This morning I was in my truck with my son. His eyebrows shot up. “Hey!” He held up a dirty nickel, retrieved from the floorboard. “Can I put this in my bank when we get home?”

“Of course,” I said.

A few blocks later we stopped at a red light. He turned to me and said, with all possible gravitas, “You and me are pretty lucky.”

“We are,” I said. “But tell me exactly why you think that you and me are lucky.”

He was very solemn. He held up the nickel. “We’ve got wieners and money.”

    Precious. I’ve had the best (funny but also serious) conversations with my children in the car. Enjoy these special moments, Josh.

      They’re pretty easy to enjoy. If I live long enough to be an old man, I’ll still be thinking about this and smiling.
