Ah, money

The time to worry about money is when you're making it, not losing it.
But people always do it the other way around - when money comes in, they laugh and worry about other things, and when it stops coming in, they stop laughing and worry about something that no longer exists.
I'm reminded of the time I learned this lesson. I think it was maybe the second grade. Three monkeys, see. They played and played. Then it rained and they ran inside only to remember how badly the roof leaked.
"We must fix the roof," one said.
"Jerk," said another. "It's raining, duh!"
"Yeah, jerk," said the third, "like, duh, man. You can't fix the roof in the rain, doood."
When it stopped raining, the sun came out, and the three monkeys felt like playing again, and so the roof never got fixed.
Second grade, doood.
