Thousandaire

“Daddy, I really want a horsey.  When can I get a horsey?” my daughter asked.

“Honey, to be honest I don’t know when we can afford a horse.  If I were a millionaire I would get you one, but we don’t have the money right now.”

“Well how much does a horse cost?  Maybe we can find one on sale online?” she asked.

“Well it’s not just the cost of the horse.  You also have to pay for a stable where it can live, and for food and for people to help take care of it.”

“Hmmm,” she said, “well you aren’t a millionaire now but you will be one day right?”

“I hope so,” I said, “but if so I can’t tell you when and it might never happen.”

“Okay,” she said, “are you a Thousandaire?”

“What?” I asked confused.

“Are you at least a Thousandaire right now?”

“Ummm, yes I guess I am.” I answered after rolling the idea around in my head for a second.

“Good!” she said, “then we just have to focus on making you into a Two-Thousandaire next and eventually we’ll get up to Millionaire!”
