Did you know I'm a famous artist?
I hadn't realised your work was that widely accessible yet! Tell me about it.
You can buy one of my drawings for two thousand dollars.
I said, genuinely surprised.
I was not aware you had that kind of cash flow going. How much did you say they're going for?
I'm a famous artist and you can buy my drawings for two thousand dollars!
I will sell YOU one for...two hundred and fifty dollars.
I would like a better markdown than that, considering you're using my pen. Also, you're not paying rent.
I guess you can buy one for...three dollars.
But it's going into your college fund. You may be famous, but you're still going to university...
I added under my breath.
Depending on how many of these you sell at two grand a whack.
This is tonight's interpretation of the Biblical tale of
David and Goliath, in which the shepherd boy has his slingshot swapped out for a sword and shield because "...they're better weapons."*
Also, that is a dragon flying above them.
I kinda love this kid.
*he did listen attentively while I read aloud the opening chapter of Malcolm Gladwell's David & Goliath, but I don't think he completely understood the point Mr. Gladwell was making about David actually having the superior weaponry.
