Businessmen have Snouts
Dreamed 2010/11/14 by Wayan
I need to deal with money. I inherited some a few months ago, I researched social/ethical investment funds and picked one I like (Ariel), but I just haven't acted.
Oh well, does it matter what I do? What any individual does? I bike, I avoid driving, I insulated the house, I put up solar panels, but a hundred million jerks aren't conserving a bit. They vote Tea Party and call global warming a liberal pinko myth. It's November, and so hot I'm sweaty in just a T shirt and shorts. I guess they're mythical shorts.

NOTE YEARS LATER
I did as the dream urged--got off my butt, invested my inheritance in socially responsible funds... which doubled in two years. I suddenly went from poor to rich.
Dreams can be comically surreal, yet still bear quite practical advice.
