Would You Really?

Our JP has leave!  It's been more than 18 months since we've seen him and are excited he's coming home.  Consequently, he is looking for a plane ticket home. While on speaker phone he and I were searching internet travel sites.   As I was reeling from sticker shock, OG & EJ walked into the office.  The ensuing conversation went something like this:

OG - How much is JP's ticket?
Me - So, far $902 is the cheapest we've found.
EJ - $902.00 DOLLARS?!!
Me - Yup.

OG & EJ leave the room for a few seconds while I continue our search.  When they return:

OG - Mom, JP, I have $300.00 I could give you.
EJ - And I have $30.00!
Me - Are you serious?  Would you really give up your i-pod savings and your dog treat money so that JP could come home?
OG - Of course, I can always earn more money.
EJ - Yeah.
JP - Well, that's very nice but I could NEVER take y'alls money.
