My Financial Life in a Nutshell

in Bad Things, Craziness (hildie's), I'm Not So Great, Kids, Movies

I was at the library last week and thought I would be nice and check out a movie for the kids. I know they are fans of the entire Spy Kids oeuvre so I rented Spy Kids II (or was it Spy Kids III or IV? As if there is any difference). When I got home they informed me that the Spy Kids movie I’d checked out is already on Netflix and they have already watched it nigh unto a hundred times.

So I put somewhere and completely forgot about it. Until it was several days overdue. I ended up paying $3 to rent a movie nobody watched which was on Netflix anyway.

And I wonder why I have no money.

Good intentions.
Mother love.
Make up a new column. It was $3.00 well spent.

I once asked the librarian if I could get a tax-deductible receipt for my overdue fines. ($65 that particular day)
She didn’t think it was funny in the least.
But I wasn’t kidding.
