Scott’s Spare Change

 

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Frank, and Scott.

Subject: Scott’s Spare Change

 

Scott Ann and Frank are walking home when Scott stops in front of a store.

 

Hang on guys, I want to grab some chips to snack on tonight.”

 

Ann and Frank follow him in and watch him pick out a bag of BBQ chips and a bag of regular potato chips.

 

Clerk: “$5.82”

 

Scott digs into his pocket for a $5 dollar bill, three quarters, a nickel, and two pennies and pays.

 

Exact change? Of 82 cents?” Frank asks as they walk out.

 

You’re weird. I always figure if I need more than two coins to make the exact amount to just pay will bills and get change.”

 

I have so many coins. I’m only paying exact change from now on. It’s so liberating! You should try it. No fumbling to put away change, no fishing out quarters from the washing machine.”

 

You’re crazy. So that’s it? Always exact change from now on? What are you going to do if you run out of coins while you’re out?”

 

I just won’t run out.”

sparechange

 

That’s gotta be more hassle than it’s worth. Why not just take the pile to the bank or a Coinstar machine or something?”

 

No. Money is meant to be spent. It wants to get out there, not rot in some bank.”

 

Okaaay. You keep doing that.” Ann says, unlocking the door to the apartment and going in.

It is Resolved

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: It Is Resolved.

Everyone is sitting at the table eating leftovers and such for dinner. There are leftover Christmas cookies, some lasagna, pigs in a blanket and a bunch of other little leftover dishes.

Its suddenly 2008. Did you guys make resolutions? What are they?

I’m going to try to lose some weight this year. Well, as soon as these cookies are gone anyway.” Tabitha says, picking up a chocolate snowball from the plate.


Would you hate me if I said my resolution was to bake more cookies? Its not though, dont worry. I want to write more. Something thats more of a story than the blog.


Didn’t you say you were going to try to write a script out of the blog? Did you ever do that?”


Nope. I still intend to, I just ..havent.


Ahh. Okay then. I’d like to find a better job this year, preferably one that nets me a bit more money.”


Yeah, money never hurts.”


Im going to try to cut down on my frivolous spending. It couldn’t hurt to actually save some money beyond my bankroll for poker, or even to start playing at a higher level. Youre not going to make a resolution are you Billy?


Nope. I’m not a resolution type of person.”


Billy’s very unresolved.”


Or I just resolve what I resolve when I resolve it, instead of only today.”


Okay then, give us one of your resolutions you have made in the past that youre working on right now.


I told myself I’d learn to juggle well a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t gotten there yet. I did manage to get the motion down, but I can’t keep it up very long.”


I like to juggle. Sometimes I juggle stale muffins after work. I should try to learn how to juggle the syrup bottles, dazzle the customers.”


But this year I’m going to join one of my pals that comes into Starbucks occasionally on one of the Improv Everywhere missions. Probably not the No-Pants Subway Ride they’re doing in a couple of weeks though.”


That could be fun. They have that mp3 experiment too.”


That’s the one that everyone listens to the same file on their Ipod and runs around doing crazy stuff?”


Pretty much. Should be par for the course for you.”

Tabitha’s Monkey Dew

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha

Subject: Tabitha’s New Job

Me and Sara are watching a rerun of Scrubs when we hear Tabitha’s phone ring. A couple of minutes later she comes out, looking all excited.

You get the job?”

Sure did. This will at least keep me paying my bills.”

Do they know you go back to school in August?”

Yeah. I’m going to work part time. I guess If I can’t handle that I’ll quit.”

So what are you doing?”

Answering phones, running to the post office, some filing. That sort of thing.”

So you’re a gopher.”

I guess you could say that.”

What kind of company is it?”

They’re a small software company. So hopefully I won’t even have much to do.”

Or they’ll constantly be behind and need you to work hard.”

That’s true. They did see rather disorganized when I was there.”

If they’re programmers, they’ll probably have you running out to buy cases of Mountain Dew or something.”

Mountain Dew. That nasty looking yellow color always makes me want to call it Monkey Dew.”

Monkey Dew? Eww. Well there is a Gristedes right across the street, but hopefully they’ll stock their own Dew.”

So any of them good looking?”

Not really. One guy, but he’s married.”

Figures. So when do you start?”

Monday. Diving right in.”

Should we celebrate or something?”

Celebrating is what made me broke in the first place. How about we wait until my first paycheck and then celebrate?”

That works for me. There is nothing like blowing a paycheck on a high quality drunken binge.”

Did I ever tell you I admire your money saving skills Sara?”
