The Future Snob

Jack has been a tad bit obsessed with money lately. He wants to know how much money I make a week, how much our house costs, how many bills we pay, how much money you need to be rich, etc., etc., etc.

When he asked how much money it took to be rich, I tried to explain to him that it didn't really matter how much money you had if your debt outweighed your cash.

"Yes," he said, "because you can be rich with love and with family and friends. You don't need a lot of money to be rich."

Not the point I was trying to make, but a good one nonetheless.

He decided he is going to be a billionaire when he grows up, so he can buy "one million Nintendo DSs."

I told him he only needed one.

He said he would be rich but, "would not be snotty like most rich people are." And, when he became rich, he would have to "wear one of those circle things around one eye." Unless he was a woman. Then he'd have to, "use those glasses that you have to look through while holding onto."

So, as far as Jack is concerned, all rich people look something like this:

When it comes to all those "rich" people, they all look like that little Monopoly dude to me . . .
