"A card."

"A card!? That all?"



"Uh, they gave me a gift certificate."

"What's the matter?"


"So what was the certificate for?"

"Oh, you know."

"Actually I don't you haven't told me yet."

"I didn't?"

"You know darn well you didn't. What wrong with you?"

"Uhhh, nothing."

"Well then, what did you get for Father's Day?"

"Ummm, a...."

"What did you say? I didn't quite catch it since you were mumbling."



"I said..."


"I said they gave me a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure."



"Hey that's a girl thing."



"Johnny, there are plenty of men who have manicures."

"I don't know any. Hey and what about a pedicure, that just sounds soooooo girly."

"Well now you do. And it's NOT girly."





"Can I see?"


"Oh come on, let me see."

"Ok, but no wise cracks!"

"I won't!"

"Better not."

"I said I won't, now show me."

"Remember no...."

"I won't. Geez."

"There, you happy?"

"Wow! Your finger nails look soooooo, clean and neat. Hey is that polish?"

"No it's not polish, it's a clear coat. Not polish."

"If you say so. Looks like polish to me."


"Ok, ok... Did you do the pedicure to?"

"Um, yeah. It was included with the gift."

"Can I see?"



"Just no."

"Oh come on."


"Roy, you're acting like....."

"Ok, but remember no...."

"I won't!"

"Ya right!"


"Never mind. There, you happy?"

"Oh my... I've never seen toenails so even and clean in my life. Hey is that polish on your toenails?"


"I didn't say anything about your girly toenails, Roy."


"What, what did I say?"
