Dog eyed 12

Father brings a roll of quarters. Ten dollars in quarters in a tightly wound roll of paper.

He lets us pick ice cream from the vending machines. E picks the expensive astronaut kind. He shares it with us with a funny look on his face. Pride that he is sharing combined with furtive glances at the cup. He wants to be gracious with us, his siblings but still..

He does not want us to eat all.
