It was another Saturday and no one knew what to do! The weather forecast included an incoming weather pattern of heavy thunder and rain!
No need to water the lawn now! dad said. "How about going to a movie?"
"I thought we were watching the expenses!" mom replied.
"Aw who cares about that!" dad answered. "We have a way of life that we have to uphold! We can't just NOT do something because we can't afford it!"
You watch your P's and Q's mister! mom said to him as she pinched him on the cheek and smiled. "We're supposed to weigh up the pros and cons of everything we do. I don't like it either! I wish I could just wave my magic wand and make us rich! But it ain't gonna happen! So you watch your step!"
"I'll watch out for you all right!" dad said as he kissed mom back! "But we have to find some ways and means to do something today! We can't sit in this house all day; it'll just get more wear and tear! And it's already practically worn out! I say we let it be like water off a duck's back and we still go to a movie!"
You want to go out? I'll show you the way out! then mom pulled dad to the back door and pushed him out! She smiled as he pounded on the door!
Dave, Chuck, Sarah and baby Kim all just watched them! It looked like it was going to be another one of those Saturdays!
