GIRL, WHO HAS BEEN GIVEN KILOS OF CHOCOLATE THIS WEEKEND INCLUDING A LARGE NUMBER OF MINI EASTER EGGS: Mum ate one!
ME: But you've got lots. If you had 2,000,002 and your mum ate one, leaving you with 2,000,001 - would it matter?
ME: Well you've got a lot - and Mum has taken one, so it doesn't matter very much.
GIRL: But I won't have as much as other people!
These moments are pure gold when it comes to economics. Perhaps I should put them in a blog, and turn it into a book.
