We went to the annual family gathering at a local lodge today for Joel's family.  In the parking lot, we were all about to say goodbye. 

Joel’s mom reaches over and touches the buffalo nickel Joel’s dad wears as part of a necklace.  “See this?  He’s worn it down over the years.”

Joel, “You wore his buffalo down?”

Joel’s mom:  “No!!”

Joel:  “Are you sure?”

Joel’s mom:  “No!  I did not wear his needle…I mean, noodle… I mean, NICKEL down!”
