Your vignette reminds me of how often people equate money with intelligence... For example, someone I know has a friend whose husband just died and left her about a quarter million dollars in life insurance. All of the sudden, this friend is now the smartest person in the room at all times, and whatever her advice, must be weighed much more seriously... about a quarter million times more seriously. Blech.

Hi again, Kannagi! It's been a while!

Imagine equating our nose 👃 with our bottom 🐴 - quite a scary equivalence, don't you think?

An unthinking 🧠 bottom without a nose for a quarter million will too soon shed it all. 🙂
