My conversation with an investment professional:
ME: Hi, I was wondering if I could ask you some investment advice.
Investment Professional: Are you looking to open an account?
ME: Sure, whatever, I don’t really care. Listen, I have about $400. Liquid. Cash. Gold.
IP: You’re not really making any sense.
ME: Yeah, okay, I hear ya. You’re a busy guy, I’m a busy guy. Lotta money to make in the ole stock market.
IP: Do you have a question?
ME: Yeah, as I was saying, I have $400 right now. Should I buy an original painting of Matt Stairs?
IP: I don’t—you mean, the baseball player?
ME: Yeah, dummy. The baseball player. Or should I say, the guy with the most pinch hit home runs for a career.
IP: Sir, I’m going to hang up now.
ME: That’s a good idea.
Personally, I still think this baby is going to appreciate in value. And should the artist, Robert Myers, release a print, or someone wants to lend me a few hundred bucks, this will hang on my walls. And I’ll finally be happy.
