My son celebrated his First Communion last weekend.  A dear man, who happens to be my former co-worker as the maintenance man at my kids’ school and who also happens to be one of my son’s best friends, sent him a card of congratulations.

Yesterday morning this dear man stopped by the school and was sipping coffee with the school secretary when my son and I made a trip to the office because of an upset stomach (my son’s, not mine).

We were both excited to see our old friend and my son ran to him and gave him a big hug.  Then he said, “Thank you for the card and the $20!”

Our friend said, “You’re welcome!”

Then my son said, “But, somebody else gave me $50!”

    OMG I would have DIED of embarrassment. hahahahaha, that is a GOOD ONE!

    It is good that you are close with him. Hopefully that shared some embarassment… SO funny!

  • Megan

    My nephew has done something similar and it was mortifying!

  • Irish Gumbo

    To which you should have added “Yeah, but it was in pennies!”

    Ouch. 🙂

    Hopefully what he meant was, nobody’s supposed to be trying to top my friend!

  • Monica

    Classic!! You must have been so proud…

    Okay, just when I think your son can’t say anything else hilariously embarrassing – he goes and does something like this!

    I gather the dear man didn’t try to match that with more $$$?

    My parents gave my stepson $100 and we decided to go to the store to buy him a wallet. He turned to me and asked ..”I don’t have to buy my own wallet, do I? I mean .. I don’t want to get smaller bills.” And apparently I have SUCKER stamped on my forhead.
