My Mind on My Money and My Money on My Mind
Today was a day-off for me. So, what did I do, you ask? Why, absolutely nothing. I slept in, watched a little bit of TV, ran a couple of errands. I love lazy days like this. Makes me wish I was rich and retired.
That way I could do whatever the deuce I wanted to, whenever I wanted, damn the expenses.
Thatís why I try to avoid watching those shows that feature the rich and undeserving.
Iím not saying theyíre all undeserving, but I donít really think just because you have the money, you should own 25 exotic cars, SUVís and throw-backs. I know what youíre thinking, it sounds like Iím contradicting myself. Honestly though, Iíd do more with my money for those that donít have the means.
For example, buying a bill of groceries for a single mom and her kids. Making a car payment for a friend whoís short on cash that month. Taking a co-worker to the doctor when they canít afford it or treating a retired, elderly couple to a little vacation to a place theyíve always dreamed about, but could never afford to go.
This is what Iím talking about. Random acts of kindness. It sounds clichť, but itís a lot better than pissing my earnings away on fast cars, Italian suits, and over-priced dinners. Itís just not my bag, you dig?
So, I pose this same question to you. What would you do if you had inexhaustible resources?
Be true and honest when you answer. Donít B.S. me with what you think you should do, tell me honestly what you would do.

I watch a lot of TV, I drink a lot of coffee, but you know what's really addictive? Heroin.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, ďYou know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Iím just not close enough to get the job done.
Hereís a little something for the O.G.ís. No school like the Old School.
How many licks does it take to get to the center of this post?
