Funny piece. Reminded me that during royalty check days of heaven I bought an Hermes tie in Paris. I really liked it and didn’t mind how much it cost because book money is not real money and French money is all colorful and pretty so it is not real money either. Then there were less cheery days. Oh, how I wish I had that money I spent on that Hermes tie! I could have paid rent! Then after many years the tie began to fall apart (it had jockeys and horses on it and I have never seen that design again.) Then other stuff happened. Now, I wish I had my Hermes tie.
