A Dime a Pair

This is the hardest I've laughed since a night long ago in Koon Dorm.

It was just another evening after a full day of work. Vanessa was napping. I was eating her lightly salted organic veggie chips from the bottom of the bag. Before I knew it, they were all gone; her special treat and I had finished them off.
She woke up from her nap and I felt compelled to break the news to her.
"Oh," I said, "chips are all gone."
She was standing in front of the mirror in the bedroom, sleepy eyed, in her underwear. "They better fucking not be!" She said, and she let her bra fall off to her elbows. I collapsed on the bed, laughing silently, shaking, tearing up. It took her a few moments to realize that there was a dime stuck to the underside of her left bosom.
She explained 'she had no where else to put it.'

Yeah, but did you still get in trouble for the chips?
