#1 Son's 8th grade graduation party was last Friday night. He didn't want to go but, "to please his parents," he put on his new suit and tie and went. (Don't think the suit was my idea. He begged me for it a couple weeks ago. "Every man should have a suit," he says. ;)
He was not the only one in a suit. The girls had all bought expensive prom-type dresses and there were other boys in jackets and ties.
Anyway, part of the fun was a casino night. So #1 borrows $1000 (play money) from his friend and loans it out to people, "as long as they promise, when they come away from the table, they'll pay me back the thousand plus 25% of their winnings." I don't know where he got that idea, we don't generally discuss the finer points of running a gambling syndicate/loansharking business at home. Long story short, he came home with $30,000!!! He said the suit made him look trustworthy. And his friend said they only had to break a couple legs. LOL
