The other day, Younger asked for money to purchase one gadget or another.
“You already owe me money,” I reminded him.
“Oh. Yeah.” He titled his head to the side. “You know, I think I should charge an hourly rate for my mere presence. And you would owe me money.”
So I explained some economics: “That only works when the demand is greater than the supply.”
And his dad explained some economics: “She already has to put up with me for free.”
But the only economics Younger learned?
His mere presence isn’t accepted as part of the product-currency exchange at Walmart.
Younger has decided he doesn’t like economics.
