  • Episode Description
  • The church rummage sale is rolling around once again and Mama's cleaning out her attic to help do her part.But refuses to give away a little handy craft she made for Vint when he was young,a pink bunny rabbit lunch box,named Binky.Little does Mama know that it is a sore spot with Vint.He considers it a child hood trauma.They ofcourse have vastly different memories of the lunch box. So when Vint forgets his lunch at home,Mama takes it to him,in Binky.Which causes Vint to freak out and catch his finger in the key grinder and pass out from the sight of his own blood.The resulting "tragedy",leaves Vint unable to work or do anything for himself.But Mama decides it's time for him to go back to work and tells Vint's boss that he will be there to open up the store the next morning. Vint refuses saying after what he's been through,he may never go back to work.Iola comments the only way to get Vint back to work is to restore his confidence.So Mama forces him to down to the store,and gets him to show her how to use the key grinder, bragging on him the whole way.It works perfectly as Vint goes back to work.moreless
