I can't get my check book to balance. That's especially disturbing when the funds are getting as low as they are these days, as I could easily end up overdrawn. Money is one of those things like shopping; I'd really rather not have to deal with it at all. Maybe I won't have to, if I spend more than I have. I might get arrested and go to prison, and then it would all be taken care of for me. Yes, perhaps prison would be the best place for me. No shopping, no banking, no check book balancing, no lawn to mow.
But California is under a court order to reduce its prison population, so they'd be unlikely to want to waste their space on a guy who had simply spent more money than he had. They'd probably sentence me to community service, and with my luck it would involve shopping or lawn mowing or arithmetic. Bugger! Or not bugger, as I wouldn't be going to prison.
I'd miss the kitties anyway. I guess I'll just have to keep adding and subtracting until the stupid check book balances.
