Thank you, Daddy

Jeannie rummaged around impatiently, tossing unwanted items over her shoulder. Snapshots of lively family barbecues, childhood toys, and school photos flapped through the air. “Dammit, daddy, where’d you put it?” She muttered.

Farther down, Jeannie began to find the pictures she wasn’t supposed to see—embarrassing moments, secrets, private sins—but she didn’t waste time on those images either. Reaching into the last corner, Jeannie finally found the jackpot: photographs of her father’s bank account and credit card numbers.

Jeannie withdrew her fingers from her father’s mind and kissed his slack jaw. “Thanks, daddy!” She chirped. It was party time.

That punchline was entirely unexpected, but entirely welcome. This one pretty much demands an instant re-read after that last paragraph. Awesome drabble!

Thanks very much! I wasn't sure if the image (heh) would work for anyone other than me. My aunt has a photographic memory, and my mom is obsessed with family photos, has bins and bins of them. Somehow, the two ideas combined to have really weird offspring.

Children with mind-reading powers can be dangerous then... to you and your money.
