Met a Young Person Today. I Think There's Hope for Our World.
Monday, February 03, 2014
i picked up a young man from the university today. he was particularly funny and a joy to have in my taxi. to make conversation he asked who i wanted to win in the super bowl. i said i wasn't into that. he said he wasn't either. that while he respected the athleticism and the sport itself, he couldn't support the amount the athletes get paid. he thought it was crazy. he said people who do something worthwhile for our world should be paid a million dollars, like teachers! gotta love that kid. if the young people out there are like him there is hope for our world.
then he said, thank you ma'am for the ride, so, i had to hate him again
just kidding. i thought he was terrific.
