in reply to If I were a rich (wo)man...

A few years ago, I was laid off and out of work for three or four months, and I realized that no matter how much money I had, even if I had enough to buy Bill Gates, I need to work. Partly it's psychological; I would go nuts if I didn't have a job to go to. Now, I'm not saying I'd necessarily have the same job, or even be in the same field; I might start an Indy 500 race team if I had a billion dollars, but I need to work. Not only do I need to keep my mind active, but, cavemanish as this is, I feel like less of a man if I'm not earning money. I blame this on my pioneer-libertarian parents, but it's not the worst quirk to have, I guess.
