The phone rang. Caller ID identified the caller as Prissy.
"What's 20 percent of $15?
"20 percent of $15?" Himself was getting ready for graduation, and he chuckled. I'm not know as the bright crayon in the math box.
"How do you get 20 percent of $15?"
"Oh, the easiest way is to take 10 percent and double it." I stuck my tongue out at Himself. There was dead silence on the end of the phone. Ten percent of $15 is a buck and a half. A buck and a half and a buck and a half is...."
"I thought she cheated me. But I can see now she didn't." She hung up the phone.
After I hung up the phone, I turned smugly to Himself. "Proud of me? I did the math in my head."
He snorted. "You could have multiplied the dollar amount by 2 and just moved the decimal point."
I stuck my tongue out.
