As my husband and I walked behind the couple at the dog park we couldn’t help but overhear the end of an argument.

“I don’t think 2500 a month will cover the cost of her condo, clothing allowance, bills, and car insurance!”

The husband exasperated lifted up his arms and brought them down to his side, “What is enough? She is in university.”

The wife looked at him, “We will write her a cheque for three thousand a month and that should be enough!”

It was with that they veered right and stormed away!

I  looked at  my husband to check if heard what I just heard in front of us. Perhaps, it is with righteous indignation I wonder who the hell gives their daughter in university a cheque for three thousand dollars a month to cover the cost of clothing allowance, car insurance, and bills.

Do you see something wrong with this picture?

I'm trapped at the suburban carnival and I can't get out! One day I'm the trapeze artist, the next the clown, and on the bad days the carnie!
