Great New Pickup Line


Trans., "do you have any idea how much it costs to get a good cleaning lady in Wolfeboro?"  I suspect their are two possible inferences from Mrs. R's immortal moment of candor:
  • She's the kind of person who cannot bear having only $250 mill when there is someone down the street who has $250 mill plus a penny.   There are any  number of different reasons for wanting money, but this one always struck me as about the most pathetic.

  • She's as clueless as a cast iron lawn dog.
I lean to cast iron lawn dog,  but I could be wrong.

"Trans., 'do you have any idea how much it costs to get a good cleaning lady in Wolfeboro?'"

That's a very incomplete and very naive translation. Clearly, you haven't spent enough time among the one percent. It ought to read:

"Do you have any idea how much it costs to get a couple of good cleaning ladies, and a cook, and a nanny, and a gardener, and a chauffeur in Wolfeboro? Not to mention the price of somebody to coordinate their activities and issue the pay checks? Sheesh! No wonder I feel so poor!"

Yours very crankily,
