I got the announcement that a fill-in-the-blank was coming, and that I was not to think about it, but just react immediately and honestly with no filter whatsoever.

"OK, I'm ready," I said.

"If I were rich, I would..."

"Sleep," I said. The answer came out with an immediacy that surprised us both.

"You don't need money to sleep!"

"If I were rich, I would never have to wake up before I was ready again. I want to be able to afford that. I want to remember what it feels like to be well-rested and alert."
