If It Wasn’t For My Money

Bim and Ali were touring their brand new house. It was a
house that Bim had paid for with his money, a fact of which
he constantly reminded Ali. In each room of the house he said
to her : “Ali, if it were not for my money, we would not be here.”
Ali didn’t say a word.
That afternoon a truck delivered a load of new furniture…
furniture which Bim paid for with his money. After the
furniture was in its place, they toured the house again. As they
observed each room, beautifully appointed and magnificently
decorated, Bim reminded her: “Ali, if it were not for my money,
this furniture would not be here.”
Again, Ali was silent.
Late in the afternoon another truck came with a special piece of
furniture which was to be the focal point of the family room. It
was a combination stereo-television-computer center all wrapped
into one gorgeous piece of furniture. Bim paid for it with
his money. When it was in place, Bim again said: “Ali, if
it were not for my money, that beautiful electronics system
would not be here.”
Finally, Ali spoke: “Honey, I don’t want to make you feel bad, but,
if it were not for your money, I wouldn’t be here either!”
