43Q ARMISTICE DAY
GEORGE. Kid, what is there you'd most like to have? Got a baseball outfit bat ball mask mit?
BOBBIE. Dad's going to give me one next birthday. That's in May.
GEORGE. That's so. It's a little late in the season for baseball, isn't it? And football too, I suppose. How about a sled. Have you got a good coaster?
BOBBIE. Yes, I got one last Christinas. She's a dandy too. Wish it would snow pretty soon.
GEORGE. It will, and freeze, too. Suppose you have skates?
BOBBIE. Yes, but they buckle on with straps!
GEORGE. With straps! Why, a kid your size ought to have a pair of real skates.
BOBBIE. That's what I say. Shoe skates. But Dad says not till my feet stop growing.
GEORGE (puts hand in pocket and brings out a bill). Do you know what that is?
BOBBIE. Sure I know what that is.
GEORGE. Could we get a pair of skates for that?
BOBBIE. I should say we could.
GEORGE. All right, Bobbie, I'll make a bargain with you. If you are willing to sell this gun and you might throw in that hat, too I'll give you this bill.
BOBBIE. Sell my gun?
