This morning's brunch conversation
Todd: So you're taking Ethan to Office Depot today?
Jennifer: To look for one-cent notebooks.
Ethan: I saw a commercial on TV. I'm going to re-sell them for one dollar each. If I buy ten, that's only ten cents, but I'd make ten dollars. If I buy fifty, that's fifty dollars.
Todd: If you buy twenty-five thousand...
Ethan: I don't think they'll let me buy that many.
Todd: Then you could buy Samuel a DeLorean.
Ethan: Well, I'd probably just pay taxes.
Samuel: You wouldn't owe that much in taxes. Why would you pay more than you owe?
Ethan: Well, I'd pay off more, so that I would have less to pay later. Paying off taxes is the most important thing to me.
