A Funny Moment

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?
