  T.J. nursed a sore head until noon, then drank a beer. He walked around his dirty apartment. He couldn't find his wife. He and Biff had been through three fights already that day.

  He opened another beer and looked at himself in the mirror in the hall. "Troy Phelan, Jr.," he said. "Son of Troy Phelan, tenth richest man inAmerica, worth eleven billion. Yes!"

  He dressed in his best suit, a gray one he'd worn yesterday when Dear Old Dad faced the psychiatrists and performed so wonderfully. "Armani, here I come," he whistled joyfully.

  Life had been soft and luxurious for the first twenty years, and then he received his inheritance. His five million had disappeared before he reached thirty, and his father hated him for it.

  "What can I do with half a billion dollars?" he asked himself as he drove along the highway. "Five hundred million tax-free." He began to laugh.

T.J宿醉头疼到中午,然后又喝了一瓶啤酒。他在脏乱的房子里转了一圈,没有找到他的妻子,那天他已经和碧芙吵了三架了。

他又打开一瓶啤酒,站在大厅里的镜子前看着镜中的自己。“小托伊·费兰,”他自言自语道,“父亲是托伊·费兰,美国排名第十的富翁,拥有一百一十亿的财产。太棒了!”

他穿上自己最好的那件灰色外套,昨天他亲爱的父亲见精神病医生时他穿着它表演得十分完美。“阿玛尼,我来了~”他开心地吹着口哨。

前二十年的生活平淡而又奢侈,然后他得到了他的财产。那五十万美元在他三十岁之前就挥霍殆尽,为此他的父亲特别讨厌他。

“五亿美元我要拿来做什么呢?”他驱车飞驰在高速公路上的时候问自己,“五亿是免税的。”他大笑起来。
