So, I was watching over my 6-year old niece and her 17-month old brother who were playing Play-Doh. My niece was shaping up something that resembled a stethoscope. “Do you want to be a doctor when you grow up?” I asked her.
She beamed. “Yes.” Just a year ago, she wanted to be an astronaut.
“Are you going to cure me of my illnesses when I grow old?”
“Yes, of course.”
My heart leapt with joy with that answer. “Thank you, you’re very kind,” I said. Imagine not having to worry about medical expenses when you’re old. I did right when I bought my niece an expensive gift last Christmas.
“But you have to pay me,” added my niece.
My nephew looked at me, shook his head, and quipped, “Oh, man!”
I decided that I should start saving money that day.
