Prices expressed as ‘dough’ instead of dollars
Question: I hear people say that it is important for your money to keep up with inflation. But I don’t care about keeping up with inflation or anyone else. I just want my money to be safe. What’s so bad about that?
Answer: When it comes to money, sometimes I wish we would stop talking about dollars and start talking about dough.
I know the euphemism “dough” has been around for years in reference to money (i.e., he’s rich…he has a lot of dough). But I’m not talking about figures of speech here. I’m talking about real dough — specifically, loaves of bread.
