“Not for resale.”

All Colton wants for his birthday is to go to Six Flags. Today we got online and bought the tickets for he and Becca to go. He was playing outside as we printed out the tickets.

Becca leaned her head out the door, “Colton, get in here!” she said in her best you’re-in-trouble voice.

She walked over and picked up the tickets. “Yes, ma’am?” he said, walking in the door. She just stared at him. He looked to me for some idea what was going on. I gave him the same stare to let him know he’d done something wrong.

She thrust the tickets towards him. “We found these,” she said, not smiling, “Can you tell me what they are?”

He nervously grabbed the paper. “I don’t know,” he said instantly.

“Read it,” she said.

He looked down at the paper in his hands. “Not for resale,” he read.

With that we started laughing and the ruse died. “The other side,” I said.

His eyes lit up. “Six Flags!”
