a vestige of thought...

Today's money system is weird when you think about it. I work two or three days a week selling chicken. Every two weeks I get a piece of paper with some numbers on it. I go to the bank and give them the piece of paper. Then I go home and sign on to my online banking account. I see the numbers in my two accounts. I need to pay a bill, so I click on the numbers in my savings account and move some of it to my checking account. Now there is a bigger number in my checking account and a smaller number in my savings account. I then type some more numbers, click send, and the number in my checking account is smaller too. But now the Computer People won't come after me because I sent them Numbers to appease them.
Never mind, I don't want to share that thought.
