  • Nickel or Dime?

    There was a little boy named Johnny who used to hang out at
    the local corner market. The owner didn't know what Johnny's
    problem was, but the boys would constantly tease him.

    They would always comment that he was two bricks shy of a
    load, or two pickles short of a barrel. To prove it,
    sometimes they would offer Johnny his choice between a nickel
    (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents) and John would always take
    the nickel -- they said, because it was bigger.

    One day after John grabbed the nickel, the store owner took
    him aside and said "Johnny, those boys are making fun of you.
    They think you don't know the dime is worth more than the
    nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or

    Slowly, Johny turned toward the store owner and a big grin
    appeared on his face and Johnny said, "Well, if I took the
    dime, they'd stop doing it, and so far I have saved $20!"
    DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

      Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
