A few weeks ago, we let Laura get a new Nintendo DSi to replace the one that disappeared into the depths of our apartment in D.C. (No, I never did figure out what really happened to it: lost, stolen, eaten by blizzard fairies. Who knows?)
Because DSis are costly and Laura didn't have the money for it (unlike last year when she bought the first one), we all agreed Kevin and I would pay for it and that she'd pay us back by doing extra chores and such. And she has done some things to lower her balance, but she still has quite a bit to go.
So I wasn't thrilled last night when, to deal with a variety of things that needed to be paid for today, I was in search of euros in small amounts. Laura had a 10 euro note, which she handed over without a fuss -- but then said, "Don't forget you owe me 10 euros."
To which I responded, "Don't forget you owe me $115."
I feel certain she will, though, at least until she's reminded again.
