Y and I were talking yesterday about money. He's pretty nonchalant with money and is more of a spender than myself. He wants to get his motorcycle tuned up this spring and it will cost around $350. He had a bunch of copper to sell so he sold it yesterday in anticipation that it would pay for his bike tune up. I asked him yesterday how much the copper sold for. He told me that he didn't want to tell me because I was obsessed with money. WTF?!?
I know that I like money, think a lot about money, check our money daily, and write about money but I'm not obsessed. I think that I have a healthy awareness. If everybody was as aware as me about money, they would probably be bettering their financial situation.
One reason that I really like money is because we often didn't have much money when I was growing up. I'm in my early 30's so I'm not that old. Growing up, we were so broke that we didn't always have a toilet that worked indoors. We actually had to use the outhouse for almost a year one time. It sucked. I never want to be that poor again. That is why I save my money and want to better myself financially. I will always have running water, a working toilet, and a working shower/bath. Always!
