The Short Kid often talks about his future because he doesn’t just want a plan. He wants a WICKED awesome plan because he’s going to live it up. The car he intends to drive costs $2.4 million, so the more wicked awesome his plans, the better.
Last night, while we were watching Jeopardy, he hatched a new one. As soon as he’s old enough, he’s going to go on the show and, for every question, he’s going to say “What is an answer on Jeopardy?” because, technically, that would be correct. No matter what they think the answer is, everything Alex says would also be an answer on Jeopardy.
SK: “I’ll take Obscure Facts Only Jeopardy Contestants Know for $600, Alex.”
Alex: “This second-century mathematical and astronomical treatise on the motions of stars and planetary paths was written in Greek.”
SK: *buzzes in* “What is an answer on Jeopardy?”
I’m not sure if that’s really brilliant or really stupid (which is often the case with SK’s plans), but I have to admit I’d watch that episode.
I don’t know SK but I love the stuff you have shared about him. He cracks me up. Love his ideas. I hope Jeopardy works for him. Thanks for sharing your life with your readers!
I would love to see the ensuing discussion.
Alex: well, that’s technically true, but not quite what we are looking for…
SK: Still, it’s true and therefore the right answer, where’s my money?
That’s exactly how I see that discussion going.
