I am going to scream !

What are they on??? I nearly fell flat on my face when I heard the news:

Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” broke a world record, becoming the most expensive artwork sold in an auction for $119,922,500. I repeat: $119,922,500

Honestly, I feel for crying. Just think about the amount of money; what it could do to alleviate pain and suffering in the world. Starving children, parents dying of Aids or whatnot illnesses, I don´t know, $119,922,500 – for one painting, and, sorry to say, it´s not really that nice or is it?? Sure, the longer I look at it, the more I see it´s potential, it kind of speaks to me, saying: “$119,922,500 – idiots”

In a way, I am lost for words because even in my wildest dreams, I can not begin to imagine anyone having so much money to give away. Surely, to them it must be like me buying a book from Amazon.

I wonder how they came to have that much money, did they have to work for it or was it “handed down” to them?

Do they feel superior to the likes of us, do they look down on us or do they live such a sheltered live that they have forgotten what real living is like?

If only I had only a fraction of that amount of money and the things I could/would do with it.

Instead, you, me and the rest of the world – with the exception maybe of the other bidders at the auction who pushed the price of the painting up to such a ridiculous high level – are merely scraping by, making do, pushing the boundaries. Sods law 😉


I am your average wife,mother,friend,employee....a bit lost in my world, a bit crazy at times but always good for a laugh - I think ;-)
