A local trainer is hosting a seminar for riders that is sort of a holistic wellness/riding goals/financial planning thing/nutrition counselling thing. There's a cost to attend (obviously), which rules us out as attendees. Instead, Redheadlins and I made a list of things to say to the financial planner just to bring her joy:
- Um well, I try to pay my bills usually, but it's a mild panic if I have to take a sick day.
- If my bill is printed in red, I know I should pay it first.
- I pay board before my car payment because I have my priorities.
- The only thing I put on credit is vet bills and tack.
- If I have enough cash for coffee, creamer, butter, and popcorn, I feel my groceries are covered.
- My idea of a night out on the town is cooking dinner at a friend's house.
- Do English Tack Trader and Craigslist sales count as income?
- If I have more than half a tank of diesel, I feel financially secure.
- When I'm depressed about being poor, I eat cookies and ice cream. If I can afford ice cream.
- My biggest financial goal is to buy a saddle that costs almost as much as my car.
- Savings for a new car? My hay barn is full.
- I use sauve shampoo to save money so my horse can get the cool stuff.
- When things break around the house, I pretend it's Little House on the Prairie and go without.
It was all a very hilarious gag until we got an offer to attend the seminar for free.
Soooo I'll keep you posted if we actually say any of those things to said financial planner or (heaven forbid!) the nutritionist. In the mean time, anything to add to the po' folk list?
