Wow, looking at the date on this one, I realized that it must have been one of my very first attempts at writing anything. I have also noticed, that I haven’t gotten much better at it, in the process.
I was thinking that lately the content here has been a bit “heavy” and that it was time to take the edge off. So here is a bit of advice from and old fool. And we all know that there is no fool, like and old fool! Almost every word of this is true, though in actuality I did not waste my money on blondes, (well, not just blondes) and I never really had enough money to consider investing in stocks and bonds… Yeah, I can hear how that conversation might have gone.. “Good Morning, you have reached the offices of F. N. Theeves, how may I help you?” “Ah, yes I have ten dollars that I’d like to invest. Do you have any suggestions for me?” “Well sir, (snort) have you thought about trying lottery scratch-off tickets?” “Duh, of course I have, how do you think I got the ten bucks in the first place? Hello, hello, hmph, hello?.. We must have gotten disconnected somehow. Hmmm, did I pay the phone bill last month?”
Please have a good time with it, and remember it’s not too late to invest in my future.. Send all donations for Jake’s retirement fund to…
Have a Wickedly Wild Wednesday everyone,
SAVE IT FOR A RAINY DAY
I was told to save my money,
save it for a rainy day.
But, I didn’t listen,
I just pissed it all away.
And when, on those days, I had some luck,
and found a buck or two,
something always comes along,
to take it all, from you.
Now, I thought about investing,
in some stocks and bonds.
But, all I put my money in,
was booze and bars and blondes.
So, if you want, to leave your job,
and live life comfortably,
just listen up my friend,
and take a tip, from me.
Put a dollar in a jar,
or maybe, two or three.
So, you won’t still be working,
when you are eighty-three.
Yeah, I was told to save my money,
save it for, a rainy day.
But, I didn’t listen,
I just, pissed it all away.
