Diamonds are a girl’s best..

My daughter (13): “For my birthday could I have a necklace, please?”

Me: “Sure. Today is Sunday, the shops are closed here in Antwerp, but next week..”

She: “But I know some shops do stay open – around Antwerp Central Station..”

Me: “I see.., what you have in mind is apparently the diamond salons.

Risking that now I probably seem unreasonably difficult in your eyes, still may I ask you darling to limit yourself to jewels that cost less than the double of our mortgage..?”
