Talking Dictionary101. Why Cry About It?


101. "What's wrong?" his wife asked. "Why the long face?" He told her his story. He'd had an opportunity to make money fast. But it required him to invest thousands of dollars. At first he was going to do it. It was the smart thing to do. He could double his money. But then he started to think about it. Maybe it was a dumb thing to do. Maybe he wouldn't double his money. Maybe he'd lose his money. At the last minute, he backed out. He hung onto his money. But a friend of his did invest his money. His friend doubled his money within a few days. "I can't stop thinking about this. I can't stop being mad at myself," he said. His wife said not to cry over spilt milk. "You've still got your money. And more importantly, we have each other," she said. "You should be happy." 1.6
