“Dad, your greed for money is gonna take you to hell.”

“How dare you say that? I have never been greedy, nor will I ever be.”

“Then prove you are not greedy, Dad.”

“How can I prove it, my boy?”

“That’s easy, Dad. Sign this cheque for ten thousand dollars.”




“‘Great things come in small packages,’ they say. But I’ve noticed small things also come in small packages.” —J.A. Taylor
