The meek shall inherit the moon

A few years ago I shared a house with the lovely T. We lived together for two to three years and when she left she sold me all her furniture, kitchen appliances and so on. She said “I’ll give you everything for $1,500”

I sighed.

Scratched my head.

Frowned.

Took a breath and said

“Make it $2,000”



This is why I will never be rich.

Worth your weight in good karma though!

Hope you and the little one are feeling better now.

We're both doing better thanks! Been crap at commenting, so excited for your move. It will be scary but great!!

I say to my pupils, If there is one thing I can pass on to you, one quality in life which I think is the best, I say: Be generous at heart!

How funny - I did exactly the same thing some years ago when selling my car. A good friend made me an offer which was more than the price I had in my head as a minimum; so I said I'd only accept the minimum.

Yes, I'm not rich either....

Someone wanted to buy my hyena painting at a show for their husband and I found myself talking them out of it "He may not like it - you know - this painting can look a bit threatening - some people dont like hyenas - I wouldnt do it if I were you....etc" Then thought to myself" hello this is my livelihood - I am supposed to be selling a commodity not advising them against buying..." Duh - more gene buildup for you. Sorry for that
