(excitedly waving a $20 bill) X: Mom! Look what I found!
ME: Wow! Where did you find that?
X: It was just sitting right there. Right on that desk! We have money. Let's go to McDonalds!
(Earlier in the week while driving past the Golden Arches, Xander asked to stop @ McDonalds for a cheeseburger. I told him we did not have money to spend at McDonalds. He quickly went into problem-solving mode & suggested we use our 'Aldis quarter' which we keep in the truck; certain that would buy him a cheeseburger).
ME: Actually, that money is not yours. It belongs to dad.
(slight pause) X: Okay. We can wait until dad's not home. THEN, we can (take the money and...) go to McDonalds!
