My son came to me one day and said... "Dad...what's the difference between potentially and realistically ?"
I had to think about this one for a minute then I said... "Go ask your mom if she would sleep with Sylvester Stallone for a million dollars...then go ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. After you've talked to them come back and tell me if you've learned the difference."
So he went to his mom and said, "Mom...would you sleep with Sylverter Stallone for a million dollars ?"
His mom...the dear woman...replied..."Of course I would ! I wouldn't pass up an opportunity like that."
Then he went to his sister and said... "Hey...would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars ?"
His sister replied... "Oh my God...sure I would...I'd be nuts to pass up a chance like that..."
Now my son is very analytic and he studied both his question and the answers he received for three days before he came back to discuss it with me.
I asked him... "So...did you find out the difference between potentially and realistically ?"
He looked at me with an understanding expression on his face and replied, "Yep dad...I did. Potentially we're sitting on two million dollars...but realistically we're living with two sluts..."
