"Where did you get that funny hat?" Mom asked him.
"I swapped for it," Bruno told her.
Dad looked proud. "Did you? What did you swap?"
"I swapped Mom."
Mom put down her fork. Her face turned white.
"Don't worry," Bruno told her. "I got you back."
Dad said, "Thank goodness! I like your mother."
"Me too," said Bruno. "I like her so much I swapped my plastic teeth to get her back again."
