“Every time Granddad does something that annoys you, you never say a word. You just write it in that little notebook,” Angie noted.
“That’s right, Angie,” her grandmother replied. “You see silence is golden. Life is so much more pleasant without arguments and strife.”
“So why do you write them down then?”
“Oh Sweetie, don’t you see? One day your granddad is going to get his whole Fort Knox-worth!”
