Tommy's house is packed with relatives for Christmas dinner. Grandpa

calls 6 year old Tommy and starts asking about school, girlfriends and

other stuff he can think of. After a while, grandpa notices that Tommy is

loosing interest in the conversation so he pulls out two bills from his

wallet to see if he can keep him interested. A ten and a twenty dollar

bill. He shows both bills to Tommy and tells him that he can keep any one

he chooses. Tommy reaches over and grabs the ten dollar bill.

Grandpa is pretty surprised and upset about the unwise decision his

grandchild made, pulls out another ten dollar bill to see if it was a

mistake. Again, he tells Tommy to take one of the bills and keep it.

Tommy grabs the other ten.

Grandpa again is surprised and upset.

He takes Tommy over to one of the uncles and shows him how dumb Tommy is

in choosing the ten over the twenty. Grandpa goes on and on showing every

uncle and cousin and each time Tommy chooses the ten over the twenty.

Grandpa finally shows the stunt to daddy. Daddy's quite surprise but

doesn't pay too much attention at the moment.

A few hours later, daddy who is very concerned about Tommy's poor

decision, walks up to him and asks him if he knows the difference between

a ten dollar bill and a twenty.

"Of course," answers Tommy.

"So why did you always choose the ten over the twenty?" asks dad.

Tommy, with a wide smile answers, "Well dad, if I would have chosen the

first twenty dollar bill, do you think grandpa would have played the game

fifteen more times?"
