For most people, their most expensive purchase is a house, followed, somewhat distantly, by the cost of a car. I should be so lucky. I live in an inner city. The local free schools hand out certificates in drive by shooting and drug dealing (not strictly true, but let’s not let the truth get in the way of a good story).
My most expensive purchase is my daughters’ education, in fact, by the time both of them have finished school I will have invested enough to buy a very nice villa overlooking the Mediterranean and a stable of Porsches.
Which begs the question why, apart from my middle class sensibilities, would I spend that much money?
A friend of mine recently sent his son to a fee paying school. He explained why very succinctly.
Where my son used to go to school, they asked him “Would you like to play an instrument?” At his new school they asked him “Which instrument would you like to play?”
It is a world of difference
Which begs the question, what questions are you asking?
P.S. the drum kit arrives next week.
