    • Lucy: Well, about a year and a half ago, Ricky wanted to go over my household account and I was $10 short.
      Ethel: So?
      Lucy: Well, I borrowed $10 from the club treasury so that my household account would balance.
      Ethel: Well, $10! My goodness.
      Lucy: Well, you don't understand, Ethel. That was only the beginning. From then on, I borrowed from the household account so that the treasury account would balance, and I borrowed from the treasury so the household account would balance, and on and on, and back and forth like a tennis game and somewhere along the line, I lost the ball.
      Ethel: What do you mean?
      Lucy: Now there's no money in either account!
