Tax Day Blues
I wouldn’t say I mind paying taxes. I know it’s my civic duty. I understand.
Furthermore, I think that the government is being considerate by collecting on such a wonderful month. Taxes in January would suck, but April is beautiful. April is full of colorful clothing and patio dining.
In fact, JCrew currently has a pair of coral toothpick jeans I’ve been craving and I need to get a new bikini because last year’s just doesn’t “look right."
So a few weeks ago, when I opened the door to my accountant’s office, the plan was to immediately stimulate the economy afterward. I walked in with my chin held up high...and walked out with heart palpitations.
An ice cold smoothie seemed to be the only thing that could keep me from breaking a sweat/crying like a baby. And it worked. Sort of.
