I cannot clearly remember what our dinner conversation yesterday was about, but it must’ve been about Ella asking me why I wouldn’t buy her a certain thing and me giving my standard reply that when she has her own money, she can buy it herself.
Ella – I’ll buy some money.
Me – Where are you going to buy it from? The bank? The shop? The supermarket?
Ella – From the shop.
Me – What will you use to pay for the money?
Ella – This food [pointing at the half chewed chicken drumsticks on her plate].
Me – Do you think anyone will give you money for some chicken bones?
Ella – Yea-eah.
I opened and closed my mouth a few times and then gave up on this converstation. There’s plenty of time still for her to learn about the restrictions of 1st world economics.
