Their weekly or monthly expenses on food would be considered astronomical to any of us in the middle class and outrageously excessive by poorer folks...even decadent and obscene.

I have often said that I've lived 5 lifetimes while most people only live one. I compare myself with cats which have seven lives. In one of my fourth or fifth incarnations I too was a chef and worked in restaurants and some of the wealthiest households in South Florida as a family chef.
