The negotiator

Conversation tonight at the dinner table:

Me: Luke, wanna taste some of Daddy's favorite stew?"

Luke: "Nope."

Me: "I'll give you a quarter if you taste a small spoonful." (I've got no shame in that bribe, folks)

Luke: (he hesitates)....."Ummmmmm.....well....."

Me: "Ok, I'll make it better and give you two quarters if you taste this small bit on the spoon."

Luke: (thinks hard) "I'll do it for five quarters. That's all."

I think we have a negotiator on our hands.

BTW, I passed on his offer and he never tried the stew.

His loss.
