Potentiality and Reality

How many of us understands the real meaning of Potentiality & Reality? Not sure? Read this mail I received from a friend and enjoy yourself.

Youngest Son: Tell me Daddy, what is the difference between 'potentiality' and 'reality'?

Dad: I will show you

Dad turns to his wife and asks her: Would you sleep with Robert Redford for 1 million dollars?

Wife: Yes of course! I would never waste such an opportunity!

Then Dad asks his daughter, if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for 1 million dollars?

Daughter: Wow! Yes! He is my fantasy!

So Dad turns to his elder son and asks him: Would you sleep with Tom Cruise for 1 million dollars?

Elder Son: Yeah! Why not? Imagine what I could do with 1 million dollars! I would never hesitate!

So the father turns back to his younger son saying: You see son, potentially we are sitting on 3 million dollars, but in reality we are living with 2 prostitutes and 1 gay.
