Welcome to Friday! We had a pretty intense week of crazy freakin’ stories here at Budgets Are Sexy, so today I refuse to get into anything deep ;) In fact, let’s start out with a joke! (You can find more of them here too, btw, there were some pretty good ones)
A tour guide was showing a tourist around Washington, D. C. The guide pointed out the place where George Washington supposedly threw a dollar across the Potomac River. “That’s impossible,” said the tourist. “No one could throw a coin that far!” “You have to remember,” answered the guide. “A dollar went a lot farther in those days.”
Hahaha… omg that cracks me up. Reminds me of all those people who say $1 Million now won’t be worth $1 Million later. Of course it’s true, but it’s still a million freakin’ dollars! :) It’s not like it gets LESS sexier in 20 years ya know? Maybe 200 years, but not by the time we retire (at least in my opinion). I swear I could live off it if you challenged me ;) You’d have to wait a while for me to prove you wrong, but I’d still take you up on it! Haha…
Do you think you could live off $1 Mil by the time you retire? Do you think you’ll even HAVE $1 Mil by the time you retire? The odds are highly against you unfortunately, but luckily you’re reading this blog which automatically gives you a bump in probability;) And even more so if you ever create that Millionaire To-Do List! Much better chances of hitting your goals if you set up a good game plan. You don’t get rich fast, baby, you get rich slow!
Now get out there and have a good weekend. Don’t pick up any wooden nickels while you’re at it either… haha… not that I know exactly WHY that’s bad? My dad was always saying that back in the day ;) I’d actually LOVE to see what a wooden nickel looks like!
