While going through Wayback archives of some of my old, old, old, blogs, I found this post from January 2005.
Conversation between mother and son…
Mom – Son, you can help with dishes tonight.
Son – Aw mom, that’s just gross! All that icky food on there and stuff…
Mom – When you grow up, you’re going to have to have a job that will afford a full staff to help take care of your house or you’ll have to marry someone with enough money to afford those things.
Son – What’s a job that makes that much?
Mom – Well your little girlfriend “B” wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up, that might make enough.
after a long, careful pause
Son – But how does not eating meat make you lots of money?
