Eric needs some money for an investment.
No. I can’t believe he put you up to this.
You haven’t even heard about it.
Sweetie, If it were the telephone and
He had a deal with Alexander Graham Bell,
I wouldn’t invest with him.
He may be nice,
Heck he may even be honest, but
He has no judgment.
I just don’t like that he has
Some kind of power over you.
That you would bring yourself
To ask me a question to which
You know the inevitable outcome.
You know in your heart that
No one should invest in his ventures.
You’re going to be painted with the same brush
If you become his enabler in these schemes.
Why can’t he get a job at a bank or an insurance company?
He’s bright enough and its steady work.
You could have the family you want.
He has big dreams and
They’re for us, not just for him.
He’ll make it big one day.
He will, I just know it.
It’s all he talks about.
He’s planning all the time.
Meantime you keep working to support him and
Postpone your own dreams.
What am I going to do?
