You insisted I should have a nest egg before you would murmur, 'I do'?
Had I had a nest egg when I started, I'd have been half a millionaire by now.
As for the nest egg and marrying, I've better things to do with that money.
May it be the nest egg by means of which you may hatch out a great fortune.
But any way it is a nest egg for my own selfish pleasure to carry me through.
