Riches, Relatively Speaking

I realised this afternoon that I am rich compared to most of the people who have ever lived.

I bought seventy steel needles today and I own more bath towels than my household can use all at once.

(Bath towels are a valid comparison of financial status because my paternal grandmother had three young children and owned two bath towels, one for the boys and one for the girls, between the five of them.)
