A True Story

Mr.:  We really have to get the basement finished.
Me:  I'm all for it.
Mr.:  I'd like to get it done because when we have grandchildren, we'll need the extra space for holidays.
Me:  Good thinking, plan ahead!
Mr.:  I'm going to clean it out, paint, put in carpet, re do the bathroom.  You know, a little at a time starting now.
Me.:  Love it!

Fifteen minutes later Mac comes in with his Ipad...

Mac:  Dad, here are the chairs you wanted me to find for the poker table.
Mr:  Not now Mac
Mac:  How many do you want?  Six?
Me:  Why do you need chairs for a poker table?
Mac:  For the basement, that's why we're working down there.
Me:  Are our grandchildren going to be running a casino?
