There’s one thing we all have in common: money. We love it, we hate it, and we need it. Sometimes we even dream about it.
One dream is “The Lottery Dream”. If you won millions of dollars, what would you do with it? Since you won an extravagant amount of money, you would probably do something extravagant like quit your job, travel, or buy a new house.
Another dream is “The Inheritance Dream”. What would you do if you inherited a modest amount, say $20,000.00? Since you inherited a modest amount, you would probably do something modest like pay down bills or put money toward a new car.
A dream I’ve had for about two years is “The Paycheck Dream”. “What would I buy if I had a paycheck?” I’ve often wondered. I’ve had a long time to think about it. The first thing I would buy would be bras. Yes, bras! Being the no paycheck = no purchases sort, that means I haven’t had anything new for two years. Since, like most women, I loathe bra shopping, you can bet that my bras are more than two years old. Well, they can take their somewhat-elasticized selves off to the landfill, because my dream has come true. Within a couple of weeks, I will be starting a new job. Not much is known about it yet, as we’re in the negotiating phase of things. But I do know this: I’m going to get new bras.
Why are the darn things so expensive, anyway? Besides costing money, bras are actually kind of like money: we love them, we hate them, and we need them. Sometimes we even dream about them.
