Last night, Paul and I were making dinner while discussing his entrepreneurship. I have a ton of respect for his work as an independent contractor—he gets to do work he enjoys while (more or less) setting his own hours. He is his own boss, which I think is awesome. But Paul doesn’t have warm and fuzzy feelings about capitalism, so when I gush about how cool it is that he has his own business, he mutters self-deprecating things about a lack of ambition and the evils of money. Which prompted the following exchange:
Me: “Why do I keep dating socialists?”
Paul: “Because they are reasonable men.”
Indeed. Or maybe it’s because socialists are better lovers!
And really, what socialist would argue with that?
