I was sort of watching TV the other night, (day?) but the program I'd planned on watching wasn't on, because the powers that be had decided to screw around with everyone's planned viewing.
As I sat on the couch idly changing channels, searching for something worth looking at, I heard this>>>
"...as you are all aware, one of our deposits has been stolen.
A relatively small amount,
$68 million dollars."
I watched a little more of that movie, but couldn't really get into it, probably because I'd missed the beginning so had no idea of the story line.
Something about drug trafficking and money laundering maybe.
Big illegal business.
I could have picked it up easily enough by watching more, but I couldn't stop thinking about
$68 million dollars being a "relatively small amount".
Heck, if I've got $68 dollars to spare, I feel like I'm doing okay, but $68 million?
What kind of fortunes were they talking about when $68 million is a small amount?
The mind boggles.
Imagine for a moment a life where $68 million is pocket change.
