The Value Of Offspring

Last updated: 2003-10-05

Rachel and Esther meet for the first time in fifty years since university.

Rachel begins to tell Esther about her children. "My son is a doctor and he's got four kids. My daughter is married to a lawyer and they have three great kids. So tell me Esther, how about your kids?"

Esther replies, "Unfortunately, Morty and I don't have any children and so we have no grandchildren either."

Rachel says, "No children? ... and no grand kids?  So tell me, Esther, what do you do for aggravation?"
