The backstory: JT and I both have a bracket entry in the NCAA pool at work. His only professed goal is to beat me; my professed goal is to win the whole pool. I picked Kansas to win the whole shooting match. JT picked Notre Dame. The fighting papists lost on Sunday night and on Monday morning JT learned the troubling news. He was bummed out and so I tried to provide some comfort.
Mama: If I win, I'll give you a share of my winnings.
JT: Really? Because if I had won, I would have bought you a smoothie.
Mama: A smoothie?
JT: Yeah, a smoothie.
His generosity overwhelms.
