Apricot Popcorn

Is doing that "popping" thing right on schedule
I have been helping to answer phone calls at work on the Economic Stimulus Rebate. (Believe me, I know it all now) Even though, this is an Individual issue, we Business people were helping out due to the huge amount of calls.
When I was in Colorado visiting last week, I got some chances to bond with the cute grandkidlets. Mitch had just been shopping for a bunch of new clothes and seemed a little bit concerned about spending a lot of money for clothes.
I thought I would help him feel better and told him how spending money stimulates the economy. He asked "What's the economy?" So, I told him about the exchange of money, goods, services, etc.
Later on in the evening, I was told that Mitch asked about getting some new component for an "X" box (or something). His dad explained that it was a lot of money to spend. To which he replied, "But, it will help out the economy!"
How cute is that, coming from a 9 year old!?
