My bookkeeper’s on her way over to help me get organized. I can’t wait (I’m being facetious). So of course I have money on the brain, bringing back memories of having no money, having little money, having what felt like lots of money and then spending it too quickly, etc. The tooth fairy, allowances (never enough!), the changing price of things. Money is such a loaded subject! What’s your money story?
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. I’ve loved reading your stories. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true.
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
▪ Avoid offensive language.
I’ll start us off with my own Money Story.
