Today's fortune: You were born with a "silver spoon in your mouth."
Dad: Kelsey residence.
Hi Pop, what are you guys doing?
Dad: Just sitting here watching M*A*S*H. What are you doing?
Getting ready to write my fortune. I have a question for you. Do you think I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth?
Dad. I don't know. Marilyn, do you think our youngest son was born with a silver spoon in his mouth?
Mom (in the background): What? What do you mean?
Dad: Pick up the phone, Matt has a question for us.
Mom (in the background): I can't get the damn thing to work.
Dad. Dammit, we can't get the phone to work. Here, I'll give the phone to your mother.
See ya, Pop.
Hi Mom. Do you think I was born with a silver spoon in your mouth?
Mom: Well, no, but you did have four silver teeth in your mouth when you were pretty young.
I remember that. I forgot I had a grill.
Mom: You mean a barbecue grill?
Mom: They were your baby teeth. When your baby teeth fell out, the silver fell out too.
Did you save the teeth?
Mom: Shit, I have no idea. I don't remember what we did with them.
So when I was a baby did you have any silver spoons?
Mom: No, but we had stainless steel spoons, and probably some plastic spoons.
Did you have silver spoons for Marty?
You did, didn't you?
Mom: The only thing I remember was was a little siver cup that belonged to your brother.
Why didn't I have a little silver cup?
Mom: Hell, I don't know. Louis, why didn't Matt have a little silver cup?
Dad (in the background): Nobody liked him, I guess.
Mom: Nobody liked you, I guess.
Figures. So since I didn't have any silver spoons, what do you think today's fortune means?
Mom: I think it means you weren't born in poverty. That you were born with everything you needed. That's what I get out of it. And that's the truth.
You're right. I did have everything I needed. And more. But I didn't have a little silver cup.
Mom: Get over it, son.
Goodnight, Mom. Tell Dad I said goodbye.
Mom: Say hello to Jamie for us.
