“No, not yet”
“How come then?”
“It’s a mess Grandpa. It’s been parked under that tree for like, forever. And, all ya got to clean it with is dandruff shampoo.”

“Listen here ya little shit. If that camper ain’t clean I can’t sign the title over. I seem to remember you’re takin’ a driver’s test next week.”
“Sorry, Grandpa. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. I’m on it!”
