    The preacher was most annoyed to find an elderly man falling asleep during his
    sermon every Sunday. So, after service one day, he said to little Juan
    accompaning him, "If you can keep your grandfather awake, I'll pay you a
    quarter."

    This worked for two weeks; the aged man was kept awake and listened
    to the sermons very attentively. On the third Sunday, however, the preacher
    observed that the old man had falled asleep again.

    After the Mass, he called Juan and said, "I am very angry with you. Didn't I
    promise you a quarter a week to keep your grandfather awake?"

    "Yes," replied the boy, but grandpa gives me a dollar not to disturb him."
