The Million Dollar Question


As part of my executive assistant duties, I have the privilege of taking care of my bosses 8 year old daughter every afternoon. She is extremely bright and conversational. As an only child she is used to being around and talking with adults . She is very mature for her age and I often forget that she is 8 years old. But every once in a while that 8 year old logic pops up and causes her to say the most hilarious things. The following conversation happened on a trip to the zoo over the summer. I have no idea what got her thinking about money, but here it is.

  • Sydney: Brianna, do you have a million dollarS?
  • Me: Nope, not on me.
  • Sydney: No, I know you don’t have it in your wallet right now. But if you counted up all your money that you have would it be a million dollars?
  • Me: Definitely not
  • Sydney: What if you sold all your stuff and all your stocks. Then would you have a million dollars?
  • Me: Sydney sweetie, there is nothing I could do or sell that would get me a million dollars right now.
  • Sydney: (in a very dramatic and concerned voice) How do you live?
  • Me: (trying very hard to stifle my laughter at this point) Well Sydney, its actually pretty easy to live without a million dollars. Actually, most people don’t have a million dollars.
  • Sydney: Really? That sucks for them.
  • Me: Yes, yes it does.
