Conversation with Grandson Shawn went as follows:
Shawn:  “Gran J, are you coming downstairs?”
Me:  “Do you want me to come down there because you want to see me or just because you want me to fix you breakfast.”
Shawn:  “Both.”
Think I know what  this boy’s future profession may be when he grows up.  Reminded me of this old joke:

 Mom and Dad were worried about their son’s career and decided to do a small test. They took a 10 dollar bill, a Bible, and a bottle of whiskey, and put them on the table and hid, pretending they were not home.

The father’s plan was: “If he takes the money, he will be a businessman, if he takes the Bible, he will be a priest, but if he takes the bottle of whiskey, he will be a drunkard.”

So, the parents hid when their son arrived home and watched as he took the 10-dollar bill and slid it in his pocket. After that, he took the Bible, flicked through it, and took it.  Then, he grabbed the bottle, opened it and took a whiff, to get assured of the quality and left for his room, carrying all three items. The father slapped his forehead, and said: “Oh no, our son is going to be a politician.”
