Ok. I wasn’t watching the news. I don’t watch the news…who has time for that?
Daddy apparently…cuz he was watching the news. I just heard him talking about it.
He said something about the stock market crashing. Crashing? Into what???
Watch where you’re going????
So I gather a lot of people, lost a lot of money…
Like a ga-zillion dollars…or something? I don’t know how much that is but he made it sound like a lot of quarters. At least 15 or 20.
If that’s true…15 or 20! THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY!!! Whoa.
You can imaging my relief when I ran upstairs and found it was safe and sound.
That got me thinking. Why are people so focused on money?
They should just do what I do. Move to a ticket economy.
See. When I do something at home…or maybe when I’m good at the store…I get tickets.
Like this weekend, for instance. While Mommy and Daddy were painting (mostly Mommy…Dad couldn’t do a paint by number if his life depended on it)…I did a little dusting.
Actually A LOT of dusting. Where does it all come from? Ridiculous!
Anyway. I dusted. Mom gave me tickets.
Same thing for movies. When I get enough tickets…Mommy lets me go online and buy a moooo-veeee.
Although I think she moves the line. Some movies only cost 40 tickets…some cost 100…A HUNDRED! Are you freaking serious!?!
She’s all “This one has 3 CDs because it’s the whole season” or “That’s a new one”…
…”so it’s more”. It’s more???
And I’m all “What-evvv.” <insert eye roll here>
Talk about a crash. What kind of shenanigans are going on here??
But it’s cool. I can just go get more tickets.
Oh yeah…you can.
And they usually have a bunch of ’em too. Red ones. Blue. Green. Pretty much any color.
And you can buy more than one roll at a time. Or at least you should be able to. I’m still working on that.
Daddy says we can’t. Something about rules and rega-lations???
I never know what he’s talking about???? <insert freak-flag here>
Either way. I don’t see what the problem is.
If you want a Coke…or mooo-veee. Just take out the trash. Dust something. Clean your desk. Wash a bowl…
…get a ticket. And relax.
When you run out…just go to the store and get another roll.
Anyway. I gotta go. My Flintstones movie got here yesterday. So I’ll be busy today.
Season 4. The WHOLE season 4! WHAAAAAT!?!?
It’s a great time to be alive.
Bye. See ya ta-mah-wo.
Here’s where I got the:
