The Highs and Lows of Pay Day

Yes! Today is pay-day. I love pay-day. It’s wonderful to pull up my bank account and see that the money I’ve worked so hard for has dropped into my account and is just sitting there waiting for me to do something with it.

It’s beautiful!

Wait a minute…what the heck is that?! My balance has suddenly dropped! Who’s messing with my precious paycheck?!! Hm…looks like my automatic withdrawal for my car insurance. Yeah, that’s pretty important…better keep that. And what’s this? There’s something else that’s reducing the shiny loveliness of my paycheck…Hm…that’s the check that just went through from where I bought groceries. Something else I see next to my computer is this stack of paper that needs my attention. Hm. Lights, heat, house payment…I think there’s some kind of communist plot against my poor innocent paycheck. I mean, really, what did my paycheck do to deserve such abrupt decimation?!

Now, it’s no longer so much a glorious, shiny, new paycheck. It’s more like a dull, whimpering nub after all the abuse it’s taken already today.

Oh, but it was glorious while it lasted!
