Can you figure out the "answer" before finishing the reading??
******************
Difference between Potentially and Realistically


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.

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.'"
