Credit Where Credit is Due

When I got this in the mail, I read it as. . . "My reason for saving:  just started Kindergarten."  And I thought. . . what the hell?  Since when is AMEX marketing to interest rate savvy kindergarteners.  What are these kids saving up for?  This was followed shortly thereafter, tongue-in-figurative-cheek by, "and since when do kindergarteners need an Amex card?"  

Mostly, Lily's expenses are taken care of by us, but if she needs to buy something, like a doggie or a pony or something, surely her piggie bank reserves are sufficient.  All of this went through my head in a split second before I reread the caption.  

Ohhhh, "my reason for saving just started kindergarten!"  LILY. . . they're saying Lily is my reason for saving, and she just started kindergarten.  Hahaha, I chuckled to myself warmly and then turned the paper over to see the addressee.  

I guess I was right the first time. . .


  1. Ha ha ha!!! So are you going to get her a card?

  2. well. . . yeah. My credit's shot!

  3. ROFL! That's a good one!

    So, Lily has a daughter starting kindergarten? ;)

  4. Don't anyone DARE tell my son about this because if he got an offer like that in the mail he would owe $10,000 in Lego purchases faster than I could grab the scissors.

  5. Every so often I get mail addressed to Cassidy for catalogs, private schools, and even credit cards. However, Cassidy died 2 1/2 years ago. Also, she was a cat.

  6. @Karen - bite your tongue!
    @Grace - my lips are sealed
    @Dani - that ended a lot funnier than I thought it was going to
