Audrey in her jeans, and Tutor in his priest pants are sitting cross-legged on the stone floor of her bedroom in The Castle making hearts from red construction paper. Audrey is signing in magic marker with a big A and... Continue reading

I asked Tutor why he always speaks in riddles. Why not come right out and say it? He told he me he muddies the waters to make them seem deeper. If the waters ever cleared, we would each see our... Continue reading

The Happy Tutor's range of cultural reference vastly exceeds my own. "Phil," he said, tossing his copy of The Bacchae so it rang off the inner wall of our Dumpster at the Intersection of Wealth and Bondage. "Dionysus is the... Continue reading

An angora cat costing $800 with genes going back to the cats kept by Pharaohs and worshiped as gods, given the pervasive animist propaganda at that time. She does not walk; she prances, head erect as if the Castle were... Continue reading

Some killjoy servants to wealth, who got no candy on Halloween, and didn’t give out any either, private messaged me to ask if Audrey got honored for giving back what she had pillaged from the downtrodden waitstaff. Honestly, she did... Continue reading

Audrey, the world’s wealthiest heir, she who will own, rule, and save the world, went as Joan of Arc last year. She kept the sword and went this year as a Pirate extorting treats from the minimum wage wait staff... Continue reading

Per The Economist, the lifetime opportunity cost of an Oxbridge arts degree, as opposed to an Oxbridge Econ degree, is 500,000 pounds Sterling. In The Happy Tutor's case, he computes his own forgone earnings since the Renaissance at well over... Continue reading

Dearest Jack (not your real name, nor your actual gender of choice, nor actually a friend of mine since the work we do is both beyond reproach and highly confidential), As a Fellow Oxonion (not your real College) thought you... Continue reading

An amphitheater carved into mountain rock, facing the sea, bordered by wild forests; at the focal point an altar on which a trembling goat is sacrificed, "Send her back," or "Cut its throat," or "give us Barabbas," it really doesn't... Continue reading

In his remarkable 1983 book, The Gift: On the Erotic Life of Property, Lewis Hyde suggests we have three languages to discuss property, the gift, giftedness, and poetics. The language of the hearth: Here a mother sings lullabies to an... Continue reading

Generally, I would say yes, but she wants to go dressed in a blue blazer, as Master Jack, offering moral advice to the kids in the neighboring castles. "Be good and never do wrong and give me some candy" is... Continue reading

I take my science directly from my immediate superior. When and if sea level rises, she will inform me of any action I might need to take.
1 reply Own, Rule, Save. Tutor is doing his best with Audrey, but she is now confined to her room for using Master Jack’s paisely suspenders as a massive slingshot to fire cantaloupes at a passing steamer. Continue reading

Controlled violence patrols the perimeter of the walled city, protecting hearth and altar, and protecting the trade routes. Among the merchants and thieves goes a god in disguise, asking all, "What is wealth?" He is Hermes the trickster, god of... Continue reading

Tutor has noticed what other's have not. What puzzles Master Jack, makes perfect sense to Tutor. In all the market turbulence, Big Momma, with collars and straddles, and options, increased her share of the world's wealth from 51% to 72%,... Continue reading

Audrey is flipping to D in the index of her Family History, provided, with gilt pages, by Master Jack, as a Value Add from the Private Bank of Wealth Bondage. “Where is Dad?” Awkward silences. She throws the book at... Continue reading
