“That’s true. I lost a few grand on stocks last week, but gold isn’t much better.”

“What’s safer than gold! Gemstones?”

“Mmmm,” replied Reginald. His face expressed his doubts. Leaning forward conspiratorially, he whispered, “Natural resources. A man can live without gold or jewels, but this …” He raised his glass and grinned, “This is something that everyone needs.”
