K and I are the ones who always have preferred to have our noses in books, rather than our eyes on television. But on one occasion we were watching together and Deal or No Deal was on; a game show which, incidentally, exasperates me to no end. The contestant had just greedily passed up an enormous amount of money, in hope for even more. And K and I had the following tete-a-tete:
C: That guy is an idiot. $70,000? That's a lot of money.
K: (complacently) It's enough to build a treehouse, I guess.
And that was that.
