The Baby

I am very protective of my daughter's baby girl, as every proper grandmother should be. One spring afternoon I dropped by to see my grandchild. My daughter and a friend had taken the little girl for a walk in her stroller and were just coming up the street.

As soon as they reached me, I bent down to admire the baby and, in my fussiest voice, remarked,

"Your little head is cold. You should have a hat on."

My daughter looked knowingly at her friend and said,

"You owe me ten bucks ..."
