When he had had enough they went downstairs, where she fixed him a giant breakfast: eggs, potatoes, ham, sausage, blueberry waffles, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. When he was truly satisfied she poured him a cup of steaming coffee.

As she was pouring, he noticed a dollar bill sticking out from under the cup’s bottom edge. “All this was just too wonderful for words,” he said. “but what’s the dollar for?”

“Well.” she said. “last night, I told ME ‘ husband that today would be your last day. and that we should do something special for you. I asked him what to give you.”

He said. “Screw him. give him a dollar.”

The lady then added. “The breakfast was My’ idea.”
