Unassailable Logic

It's been quite awhile since I've sat down to write something for Between Keyboard and Chair but I felt that the logic in the following conversation was too good to let pass.

This conversation took place between my son and grandson on the Saturday before Mothers' Day. Nothing like a rational approach to gift giving.

Son: Did you buy your mother a Mothers Day gift?
Grandson: No.
Son: Why not?
Grandson: I don't have any money.
Son: Didn't your mother give you $20?
Grandson: Yes.
Son: What are you planning to buy with that money?
Grandson: An XBox card.
Son: Why not buy your mother a Mother's Day present with that money?
Grandson: That doesn't make any sense. That would be like just giving her back the money!

And later

Son: I'll take you out to buy a Mothers' Day card to give to your mother.
Grandson: I made one at school.
Son: You made on at school. That's nice.
Grandson: Yeh, it was either make a Mothers' Day card or do math!

You can't argue with that.

At least that's the way I see it from Between Keyboard and Chair.
