What must it be like to be rich?
We've all fantasised about buying things like mansions, motors and footwear that only a Strabane lottery winner could afford. But now, there's a new one to add to the list.
Amid the startling recent revelations about life chez super-rich Nigella and Charles Saatchi, the most dazzling, I thought, was the line about how he kept a wad of money sitting on the fridge. Apparently just for dipping in and out of. Like a bowl of dry roasted peanuts.
This is Midas-scale fairytale wealth, isn't it? The bottomless pot of gold. On top of the fridge. Oh, Brothers Grimm, even you didn't think of that one.
