You don't smoke. You don't know anyone who does smoke (or at least anyone who will admit to it anymore). In fact, you can't even remember the last time your child saw anyone holding a lit cigarette and yet there is your little darling presenting you with your own handmade ashtray for Father's Day. What exactly is going through your child's mind? Do they want you to die early so they can get their trust fund faster? Did it start out as a change bowl but morph into the ashtray when it grew corners? This is of course the same child who told her teacher that you don't have a job because she's "never seen you working" so maybe some questions shouldn't be asked. Nevertheless, having been through years of Father's Days watching my husband graciously receive everything from a ruler to a singing card that ended with "Wipe my butt!" I think I may have some insight into what your child means when he gives you your gift.
