Let’s Make a Deal.

I was having a challenging time getting Joe to go to bed tonight.  He was determined that he wanted to get in his truck and “go home”.

Me:  “Hey Joe, how about we make a deal?”

Joe:  “Well that depends…”

Me:  “On what?”

Joe:  “It depends on the conditions.”

I laughed:  “Okay, here’s what I’m thinking.  If you will let me help you get tucked into bed, then I will give you a bowl of ice cream.”

Joe’s eyes lit up and he grinned from ear to ear.

Me:  “How does that sound?”

Joe:  “I think that sounds pretty good.”

Me:  “Okay, great!  Let’s get you out of your chair and into your bed then, huh?”

Joe:  “Why would I go and do a thing like that?”

Me:  “Well you want your ice cream don’t you?”

Joe:  “Yeah…”

Me:  “Well, you have to get into bed first.”

Joe:  “Well shit, if I had known that that was part of the deal I never would have agreed to it!”

Me:  “Okay, well what do you think would be a fair deal?”

Joe thought for a minute:  “How about you go and make me a bowl of ice cream…”

Me:  “Okay, and what will I get from you in return?”

Joe chuckled:  “I’ll give you a ride home in my truck!”
