Charlie's Story

Charlie was what we would call ‘adventurous’ as a child. There were several times he skipped school, and his mom would find him just hanging at the beach. After high school, it became time for him to move out on his own. During the move, his mom found an old piece of luggage with $500 and a coconut in it. "Charlie…what the heck is this?” she asked. “Well, every time I skipped school without you finding out, I would put a coconut in this old suitcase." A smile came over her face, "I guess one time in 18 years isn’t as bad as I thought. But, what’s the $500 for?”Charlie smirked, “Whenever the suitcase would get too full, I’d sell off the coconuts.”
