So yesterday in the office, a few of us, including the big boss, got to be talking about how Steve Jobs' widow is now worth like eleven BILLION dollars. With a "B". (And she's not bad looking, either.)
Well eventually we started talking about what we'd do with $11,000,000,000.
One guy says that he'd retire and move to Vegas...and buy a casino.
The boss says that he and the wife would be living in the Bahamas on their own private island.
Then they looked at me, because I was already smiling.
"With eleven billion dollars, I could hire a mercenary army and take over half of Europe," I said. "And then after I consolidated my empire, I'd take over the other half!"
The boss shook his head. "Why you always gotta be extreme like that?"
Sheesh. Since when is having a little ambition so wrong?
Anyway, I've got to finish my letter to ex-Mrs. Jobs now before the boss comes back from lunch. (Hey, it could happen, right?)
