I left out some very pertinent information when talking about Chance's phone.
And, I can't believe I forgot.
Because it was the straw that broke the negotiation camel's back.
When Matt and I were both feeling the first pangs of inevitability, Matt took action, and threw some pork into the equation. I'm tellin' ya, the man should be a politician. Because, said pork had NOTHING to do with the situation at hand, but got us something we'd been wanting for awhile.
A well-kept kid.
The actual wording of said addendum to Messer House Bill #446?
As long as your hair is cut respectably (side note: as determined by DAD), you can use the phone that we let you purchase with your own money.
BRILLIANT! Did you see how he fit in every qualification for pork?
Had nothing to do with the original bill.
Benefited us and not him.
Actual measurement of said addendum sketchy at best, subject to mood swings and fuzzy math of the author at worst.
PS - I think you look really handsome, Chance.
