“They coveted my multitudes,” grandma said.

Henry looked at the few pennies left on the floor, poured out from the Old Maxwell house can.

Henry called Petey and Georgia (5 yr old twins) into the kitchen.

They entered with adorable, guilty faces.

Henry stood with his hands on his hips. “What did you two do with the pennies?” he asked.

“Toilet…but why?” Henry gasped.

Georgia’s words came out shaky, “Granny said the money always goes down the toilet.”

“They coveted my wisdom,” Grandma said smiling.

Grandpa Henry sighed and retrieved the pennies.
