The Dealer's Daughter

One side of the family is infested with antique collectors. A cousin is planning a garage sale and begged us at a recent gathering not to tell her aging father. “He’ll just buy the things he gave me and give them back to me again.”

I don’t quite know why this is funny, but over the years I’ve run into a few pieces of homing junk myself, and it is truly strange how some artifacts have a life and a history of their own.
