Talking Dictionary895. Money In A Hat


895. Everyone was in the living room after the Thanksgiving meal. Erin said, "Sunday was Brevyn's twelfth birthday. I thought it'd be nice to give him an additional gift today, so I'm passing this hat around. Put a bill in it, and he can pick one out." After all the bills were in the hat, Erin called Brevyn inside. She held the hat above eye level. He felt around for a bit and pulled out a twenty. Everyone clapped. Erin passed the hat around for family members to retrieve their money. Mike and Gary got into an argument over the last twenty remaining in the hat. After Mike lost the argument, Brevyn walked over and handed him the twenty. Later, Erin told Brevyn how impressed she was. He said, "I thought you were going to surprise me by giving me everything in the hat. Twenty dollars is for the kiddie table." 5.1
