While shopping for a Mother's Day gift with my two young boys we found ourselves in the parking lot of a store with the younger son temporarily shutdown and fast asleep in his seat. I decided that we'd wait awhile in the car to avoid hauling around a squirmy armload of snoring.
This is when my seven year unveiled his idea for a business venture.
Son: Dad, I want to start a company that makes laser guns.
Me: Who would you sell laser guns to?
Son: I'd sell them to anyone who wants one.
Then he thought a minute.
Son: What are those papers we had to show the people at the border?
Me: You mean our passports?
Son: Yeah, I'll have to check their passports to make sure they didn't escape from jail or something.
Me: You mean you'll do background checks on your customers?
Me: What if they turn out to be a bad guy?
Son: I'll just lie about the price and charge them more.
