...and she bends over and whispers this question in my ear... 'Wat doet u voor het leven?,' her sweet and lustly hot voice beckons softly... (The music is pulsating in the club, deep bass, people relaxed and in a nice mood, money dripping like honey everywhere with the hottest tail in every seat or on the floor) I tell her, in my broken Dutch, that I made some money in real estate in the U.S. when times were good, because I stayed away from debt, and cashed most of my properties out when times were good, and am keeping a low profile for now, with the world's economy in a rare and unknowable state (I even reference Rumsfeld's famous 'known unknown; unknown knowns' speech). So she throws her drink in my face (there's about $3,400 USD of my fricken' money down the drain), slaps me, and tells me that she only dates winners - - and she sexily saunters over to the guy decked out in Hugo Boss and dripping in 24 karat and dual triple studded 3 ct diamond ear rings, who is known by some as ' El Chupacabra,' but won't give his real name, but who turned $277.19 into $187,000,000.00 USD in 9 months time, posting his P&L log on a website called 'EliteTrader' along the way. How could this be? Has the world gone mad? I retire for the night, heading back to my modest (but at least paid for, thankfully) digs, wondering how it all went so terribly wrong... But alas, tomorrow is another day, and maybe the worm will turn.
