WAY too literal

Little Brother is working on a homework assignment for the 100th Day of School, which will take place this coming Tuesday. He has a worksheet that says, “If you were given $100, what would you do with it? Why?”

Little Brother decided that he would give $80 to the poor and then use $20 for a game for himself. I asked if he wanted to write down the name of the game.

“I can’t! I don’t have the game!”

Then he realized that this was all imaginary money anyway, and the assignment became a lot less fun.
