Millionaire Mobster Blog: High Tech Hero, February 22, 2013
Victor has an i-pad now. To most of you, this might not be a big thing, but he's playing with it like a damn kid. "Look at this, Lou," he says, showing me images from the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
I don't mind looking. We're having breakfast at Poppies over on Linton, in Delray Beach. It's full of old men reading newspapers and old ladies eating bagels. Victor's trying to size the images the way the young people do, but even though he's pretending to be a pro, he keeps losing the pictures. So then he goes on and checks his email, but since the chick he's been trying to dump for the past month is the only person in the world who knows Victor has an email address, all ten emails are from her. So now he checks the Dow Jones, and we have better luck here, as he starts scrolling through the stocks, announcing market activity and fluctuations like Maria Bartiromo. Suddenly, the old lady sitting at the table next to ours starts leaning forward. She asks Victor to check the price of Apple, and he says, "Sure thing, doll." Playing hero. The old lady loves it.
