From the Mouths of Babes

Last night Brian had a chat with Helen.

Brian: Helen, what are you going to be when you grow up? Are you going to be a doctor?

Helen: No.

Brian: Are you going to be a dentist?

Helen: No.

Brian: Are you going to be a teacher?

Helen: No.

(You get the idea. Astronaut, scientist and librarian all get the same response from Helen.)

Brian: (grasping at straws) Are you going to be a telephone operator?

Helen: (vigorously nods head yes)

Brian: Are you going to own the phone company?

Helen: No.

Brian: Are you going to a good college?

Helen: No.

Brian: Are you going to get good grades?

Helen: (nods, a little uncertainly)

Brian: Are you going to get straight A’s?

Helen: No.

Brian: Are you going to live at home forever?

Helen: (vigorously nods head yes)

(Brian went ahead and increased his 401k contribution this morning.)
