Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, January 06, 2021

Late one night, recently:

She: So tell me, what’s your net worth?
Me: Are you serious?
She: It’s no big deal.
Me: Are you talking financially? Or spiritually, morally…?
She: What?
Me: Karmic-ly…?
She: Just take a guess.
Me: Well, if we average all that out, I’d say I’m net worthless.
She: Oh.
Me: All right, then.

  1. Sounds like you accidentally found yourself at Hyde Park Cafe.

  2. Someone who wants to know your net worth… I think I would have answered, “42,” and left her wondering.

  3. Nice idea, but she probably would have assumed that meant “42 dollars”. Subtlety, to say nothing of sarcasm, just doesn’t register with some people.
