Yes, the title is based on the movie with Alicia Silverstone and Benicio Del Toro. Now, on with the post…
I would assume the quote in today’s prompt applies to those who already have too much/too little of everything and find themselves on the other side of the tracks.
People who have very little may choose to be extravagant once they come across a windfall. Those who have had extreme excess may not know what to do with themselves the moment they end up with too little.
Then there are those with/without excess who become innovative and creative with any resources available to them to the best of their abilities, and end up content. It could depend on their upbringing, or examples and experiences throughout their lives, which helps them get by.
