Bonus Sister conversation

Sister: Mom, what would you do if you had unending money?
Me: Hmmmm....I'd probably try to feed everyone who was hungry.
Sister: Yeah. (pause) You know what I would do?
Me: What?
Sister: I'd give a million billion trillion jillion scrillion dollars to the poor. And then I'd make sure I had some things for college and good shoes and things like that that I need.
Me: (beaming with pride at her priorities) I think that's great, honey.
Sister: (long pause) And then I might go to the store and see if there was something nice.
Me: Mmm.
Sister: (another long pause) And I'd probably buy a limo.
Me: (startled out of a warm motherly reverie)
Sister: And a pool. And a nice house out in the middle of the forest. But also a mansion. And of course I'd get about a million pets!

The list went on for the rest of our dog-walk. But at least her first instinct is to be helpful, huh? Funny girl.

I like that shoes were one of the top priorities after feeding the world.

Yeah, I am pretty impressed at the order in which she listed stuff. She could have very well started with the materialistic and worked her way back. You know her intentions are good!
