I do it with the knowledge of the office, they know that I will be caught up each December. Gives me extra cash when I need it.

Nothing like a free month of rent when it comes in December.

Well, it's not exactly "free"...it's just pre-paid.

You could just put $10 a week in a jar or something.

Too easy to dip into for no real good reason.

I was coming off the elevator at work and there were three women waiting to get. One of them complimented me on my blouse and said it was the perfect color for my eyes. It made me smile and I thanked her. As I walked away I heard one of the women say, "That girl is so nice," and another say, "Mhmm, and so pretty." The woman who had complimented me on my blouse added, "She's beautiful *because* she's nice." What a wonderful compliment, to be beautiful because I'm nice. Made my day.

"Beautiful", "Pretty", "Nice". We're going to need a picture of that blouse.
