My friend's second-grade daughter has decided she wants to attend Princeton.
Daughter: Mama, I checked the Princeton website. It costs $45,000 a year to go there.
Daughter: What do you think it will cost by the time I go to college?
Mom: I don't know -- maybe $60,000 a year?
Daughter [long pause]: OK. So I'll need to get a job by fifth grade.
The end of the line
