When I came here ...


The Difference between 'Realistically' and 'Potentially'
A young boy went up to his father and asked him, "Dad, what is the difference between 'potentially' and 'realistically'?"
The father thought for a moment, then answered, "Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Then ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars, and then, ask your brother if he'd sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Come back and tell me what you learn from that."
So the boy went to his mother and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?" The mother replied, "Of course, I would! We could really use that money to fix up the house and send you kids to a great university!"
The boy then went to his sister and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?" The girl replied, "Oh good heavens! I LOVE Brad Pitt and I would sleep with him in a heartbeat. Are you nuts?"
The boy then went to his brother and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?" "Of course," the brother replied. "Do you know how much a million bucks would buy?"
The boy pondered the answers for awhile and then went back to his dad.

The Washington DC area was regarded as a "sleepy southern town."

Now it is called the "Washington Metroplex."

I think it is the most important city in the world.

His father asked him, "Did you find out the difference between 'potentially' and 'realistically'"?
The boy replied: "Yes. 'Potentially' you and I are sitting on three million dollars, but 'realistically,' we're living with two hookers and a future Congressman.''

I've lived in Washington for over 50 years and I don't think I've ever once heard anyone refer to it as the "Metroplex."

Dallas-Fort Worth is often referred to as the "Metroplex," and I believe it is the only place in the country where people use that term.
