This afternoon my six-year-old son and I played the game of Life.  In case you are unfamiliar with the game, it's a game in which players move around a board earning money and losing money while following the natural progression of life (getting married, having kids, retiring, etc.).

My son decided he wanted to be the banker.  I hestitated on that one, but decided to let him give it a try.  He sorted the money his way.  When he was done, I looked at the piles.  He had all of the hundred thousand dollar bills, while I had all of the promissory notes.

"What's this?" I asked.

"It's life - I have all the money, and you're broke!"

(They learn young, don't they?)
