Joy: I can’t believe it’s snowing again!
Michael: Yeah, and it’s freezing out again, too.
Joy: What should we do?
Michael: How about a little wager at the pool table?
Joy: What kind of wager? Neither one of us has any money.
Michael: Well, Mommy is going to Waterloo tomorrow, and she never takes more than two of us at a time. Let’s say whoever wins, gets to go on the trip, and decide who else gets to go, too?
Joy: You’re on!
Michael: You can go first. After all, you’re going to need an advantage.
Joy: Thank you. I will go first, not because I need an advantage, but just because you offered.
Joy: Oh, this is harder than it looks!
Michael: You’re doing all right, but you know you’re going to lose, right?
Joy: Not if I can help it.
Michael: Read it and weep, sister. If I make this shot, you lose big time.
Joy: You have to make the shot first, big talker.
Michael: Treasure! No!
Joy: Bad kitty! Get down from there!
Joy: Come back here with that ball, Treasure!
Michael: We mean it, Treasure! Right now!
Michael: Now what? How are we going to figure out who goes to Waterloo tomorrow if we can’t finish the game?
Joy: And I was this close to winning, too.
Michael: Yeah, right. How about a game of cards to see who wins the bet?
Joy: Perfect. I’m a card shark you know.
Michael: Ha! We’ll see about that.
Sofia: Should we tell them we already asked Mommy this morning if we could go to Waterloo with her?
Luna: No. It’s kind of fun to watch them wear themselves out for nothing.
