Birthday Card

  RIP '09

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 dream-come-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.
GRANDFATHER: Bye bye.
