Rich People, Part Two

A couple dozen people at a party, all Hundred Millionaires.  Except me, of course.  I could hardly afford the petrol to drive to the party.  “Quit whining.”  (My evil twin again.)


Hunnert Mill Heinrich: “Did you hear that Zordog made the Forbes ‘100 Richest in the World’ list?

Hunnert Mill Harold: “Yes.  Have you talked to him lately?”

Hunnert Mill Heinrich: “No.  Ever since he made that list, he has upgraded his social contacts.  He only hangs with the billionaires now.”


Check this, my homies:  rich people are soooo not like you and me.  They even dump their Hundred Millionaire friends when these friends are not upscale enough.


Ten Mill Tom: “Hey, you guys, can anyone get me a meeting with Zordog?  Anyone, anyone?”

Crowd edges away from Ten Mill Tom, leaving him alone with the caterer’s assistant.

    Wow, even a caste system at the very top….very sad when you dump old friends when opportunity knocks, you make money, some just “lucky timing and of course hard work”…but many of us do hard work….God forbid any of those that are dumping old friends ever fall from their piles of money or the piles are depleted…where will their friends be….we can only hope most people keep friends no matter how little or how much they have…close friendship is ALWAYS more important then money.

    Love and feelings are what make us who we are. Thanks for writing, MJ.
