Ah Ahhh… my daughter was given this term of endearment “Martian Girl” when I started this blog in 2009. Then, she was a clueless but adorable teenager.
Fast forward to today, she is all grown up and sharp as a whip. I have got to gift her a more relevant name. I think Savvy K is very apt.
Just the other night during dinner, my delectable husband Gizmo Man (termed so in 2009 and still playing with his gadgets today so name change is unnecessary), popped a project to Savvy K, “Girl, I want you to create and manage a website for me to sell my collectibles online, I’ll give you 20% of the profits.” Remember it is MCO and Gizmo Man has been cleaning out 40 years of his precious gadgets and books.
I thought that was quite unfair, only 20% to create and manage his website? So mother dearest had to ensure that a fair deal was brokered, “Hey, that’s a bit low, you should give her at least 30% or more.”
Without a blink of an eyelid, Savvy K replied, “Don’t worry mum, I am managing the site, I can even take 50% of profits as Daddy will not know what is happening and how much I actually sell his stuff for.”
You should have seen Gizmo Man’s eyes popping out and him choking on his lamb curry and rice!!
