Fairies and Economists

Overheard in a coffee shop… “My mother’s best friend decided she was a fairy and moved into the woods in Vermont.  She lives without electricity or running water.”  She’s very cool (but totally nuts).    She’s basically what my mother would have been if she hadn’t married an economist.”  WHOA!

Reminds me of a friend who says, when confronted with her lack of familiarity with all things emotional, “What do you expect?  I was raised by engineers!”

Are you more of a fairy or more of an economist/engineer?  Tell me what that means to you.
