overwrought (you and me in time)

i love that part on antiques roadshow when the person finds out how much their artefact is worth: any number over zero will make them genuinely estatic, their faces light up like those of children at a fair as the happy accident of their existence crossing paths with the existence of this object is made over and made real thru the validation of expert appraisal and an estimated dollar amount.

you are worth as much as the token you carry.

that's what real life is all about

(or so they tell me).
