Another year was coming to a close, Apple was trading at $14.00 a share, and Mary had a chunk of inheritance just sitting in the bank doing nothing. So I phoned up Chris—the only guy I know in the money business—to help me figure out the best way to fulfil my Apple fan-boy dreams, and the first thing he said to me is what guys in the money business have been trained to say from the days of Aesop on down: “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”
     So we only bought 58 shares.
     Fuck you, Aesop.


  1. Well, you COULD have lost shirt, too. Ya nevah know.

  2. At least you have 58 shares... I always try to find that silver or is this bronze lining!

  3. 58 is better than nothing! Happy A week,

  4. Such is the way of choices. Be happy you have some shares.
    Sorry, I really don't like your use of profanity.

  5. Oh no, aren't we suppose to say F word?

    Mine is Angel, please come and see.

  6. Hello, I know I am quite late in dropping by but still don't want to miss anybody who joined the Round 10 of this meme. My first time to join. :) Hope you had a good day.
    My "A" for ABC Wednesday
