Daughter of mine,
please cease to dine –
you must watch your diet
and be very quiet
For to be plump is no longer considered fair
economics dictates wealth=beauty=thinner than air
I’ll admonish you at the refrigerator
for I am your fat extinguisher
I dream of food
but have not chewed
anything for hours
this, the secret to my powers
Listen to me, my lean baby
can’t you see, I’m happy
follow my suit and you will be
as happy and as thin as me

It’s called accountability.

I agreed to be the sponsor for several sixth-grade boys who wanted to start an investment club at school. They run it and I am just the certified teacher in the room to monitor them.

“So a long-term stock is like a short-term stock, but it’s not short-term. Hence the name.”
