Today I was rather silly.
Because I spent a lot of time worrying.
In the late afternoon I slapped myself mentally.
Money isn't what makes life special.
It can just help it be less frustrating when bills arrive.
I forced myself to think of things that cost little or nothing
but which I enjoy more than silly old money.
Silly animals crack me up.
They're so chilled out, until dinner time that is,
but I'm ok with being chilled out until dinner time.
Then all you have to do is feed me.
Funky old houses
Dangling my feet in water
Tables made out of barrels
Murals on buildings
Chalk art on the street
Playing with photos
Singing all the songs from Moulin Rouge
Purple suits that have a feather hat
and most importantly, happy memories
With all these things at my fingertips
I reckon I'm richer than most millionaires.
So. Take that bills
Take that money.
I'm happy with or without you.
