This guy gets a phone call from a lawyer who is calling from a pay phone in Alaska.
The lawyer asks if his name is Joe Blow, and the guy says "yes, speaking."
Then the lawyer tells him he represents the estate of the guy's distant aunt, JoAnn Blow, and says his dear Aunt JoAnn Blow has left him $6 million dollars!
Joe Blow is about to shout "Good old Aunt JoAnn!!" The telephone operator, however, cuts in:
"Please insert $18,000 in coins for another three minutes."
I'm here to tell you we're approaching that time fast!!
I was reading the giveaway tabloid on the metro this morning, and I noticed the weekend car ads.
Especially the one for a used 2008 VW Beetle for $16,993.
"Oof!" I said to myself. "WE PAID $15,500 FOR OUR FIRST HOUSE!!" (with two acres!!)
Then I remembered that our VERY OWN FIRST BRAND NEW CAR was a 1962 VW Beetle, and it cost $1,400!!
THEN I remembered going into my favorite bike shop recently and seeing a brand new BICYCLE that cost $1800!!!
Gotta bounce....gotta meet a friend. I'm walking a LOT these days. It's very healthy, I hear.
