English term or phrase:paper money
- You are only 16 and you have got a lot of money. 15 million quid...
- That's just paper money.
Does she mean that money doesn't count? Money is not the most important thing in her life? Or maybe that she has earned 15 million but is not allowed to spend so much money?
This is it! Thank you.
Btw, she HAS earned the money. Later on she says: I am sixteen. I haven’t got any right to vote. And I have to pay forty percent tax... ;) 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
