You may or may not have heard that Forbes put out their rich list today. Topping the list of 1,211 people with more money than they’ll ever be able to spend, is the chairman of Telmex, Carlos Slim Helu, worth upwards of 74 billion dollars. Bill Gates came in second, with over 56 billion dollars and Warren Buffet placed with over 50 billion dollars.
All I can say is, thank God those tax breaks to the wealthy were extended! I mean, really, poor Bill and Warren! Without those tax breaks, they wouldn’t have a fighting chance to catch up or surpass Carlos.
(Completely off topic: did I use too many commas in those first two paragraphs? It feels like I used too many commas.)
In any case, while my name may not be on Forbes’ list, I really don’t care. See, I’ve got something Carlos and Bill and Warren don’t have. I’ve got people who love me for who I am and not for what I have (which is really good since I don’t have anything).
I even have people I’ve never met who love me (actually, I’m pretty sure it’s because they’ve never met me that they love me). They love me so much, they send me stuff. Like Twinkies. Which, by the way, are all gone. I’ve had to enter a 12-step program. There’s a lot of crying and wailing and scarfing of cookies. It’s not pretty.
But I digress.
