Things nowadays are so, so hard to deal with; especially when
you're talking about money. Well, maybe you'll wonder about a
child talking about money, money business, how could a little
child ever do that?
You could be thinking, it's pretty common now, everybody holds
money, and even a gift, would be money itself; But what about
this little girl? Back in the 1980s there's a family, yeah, of
course, there's the mother, the father, the siblings, and the
rest for the extension… Yet that's not what we are here for! Why
won't you take a tour in the house? It won't be awhile but I will
make it up to you… nice and slow.
Then, what about a scene with this child… Her name is Andy, a
very simple girl with a very charming smile. She's sweet,
thoughtful and very "wise". If you're talking about favors,
orders or any other …well, expect Andy to answer "Ok, right away
sir, but for one condition…" and that's it! Andy is smart; she
won't let you down… unless you let her down. So that's the
problem. Don't mess with her. She loves to make a deal, yeah,
deals a lot, what a genius! Aside from that, don't be surprised
when you'll be seeing her counting favors. And what about Jack;
her very big brave and strong brother, People always say that he
is nothing compared to Andy.
"They did nothing but to talk about money," Well, like what Jack
ought to say everyday he opens his eyes in the morning. It's a
nightmare to Jack. Very well, now that you know our little angel
in the hall, welcome to the family!
By the way, don't you ever ask something to Andy…? She won't give
anything without another. It's a lifestyle. Want a day with them?
Meet Mr. Robinson, their uncle, he's the nicest guy in the
One day, he asked a favor to Andy.
"Could you get me a coffee here?" That's how Mr. Robinson asked
his niece every night.
"Well, sure! 5.00 php for the creamer, the same price for the
powdered coffee, and as well as the sugar… oh, and before I
forget, care for hot water, at the same price? I'll mix it
especially for you, special with another 5.00 php…" Andy replied
with the usual sweet tone.
What's the sense of it…?
Let me tell you, so, here's it, the new lifestyle. Well, I'm
about to say that money did this to our life; dirty in our hands,
filthy to our minds ; yet it remains, making you believe that
somehow, it's an essence to be alive.
"Wake up, Jack knows it best. Why do you care too much for money?
It's only a piece of paper…! With drawings, I prefer. Every body
can rip it off; every body can be ripped off! Don't you step on
him that way?!" Well, that's how Mr. Robinson used to utter every
time Jack feels so shame.
However, Mr. Robinson makes sense. What is money anyway? And why
does it bring us to arguments? Was it really meant to help us
live, or was it just wearing a mask secretly begging us to die?
