Joys of little money

Filed under: Daily Rot — Cris @ 15:48

— passing textile shops, drooling over clothes on windows, and when you finish – put your tongue out and say “bwa they are all bad”

— taking long walks enjoying the things you see, running after buses giving yourself adventure plus exercise. Look at people in cars and bikes and say “Ha they don’t know what they are missing”

— hanging out with friends at road-side stalls, having food you wouldn’t care the taste of cause you are busy trying to get a bigger share from the one plate you ordered.

–browsing through books you know you are not going to buy. Smell it and keep it back and promise to save a little to get it next month – the joy of finally getting it is priceless

— knowing you are completely broke wouldn’t stop you from laughing it out with your friends. “Guess what – half more month to go and I am broke” you say and your friend replies “darn you lasted 5 days more than me”.

— having pretty much nothing to worry about – they say you only worry about things when you have things. So logic would tell you what having no “things” mean 🙂

There is more, but as usual I have this thing for 6, so I stop here.


  1. Loved the last one.

  2. hehe.. gud ‘un!

    surprisingly though, i don’t have anyyy same pinches here!! 😦

    gosh.. im very very conventional when it comes to financial security, i guess..
    i have to, have to, make sure that i invest wisely, save wisely, have enough to splurge on whatever i want, can never imagine living on credit or being broke ever etc etc..
    basically, i need those ‘things’.. i guess its one of the reasons i can still get a peaceful night’s sleep after being out of job for months! 😛

    so, basically, i digress.
    i guess ‘things’ are good.. atleast, they make you feel less bad about other ‘things’ that you dont/cant have! 😛

  6. Ah…. the weightlessness of having no’thing’ !
    How dreary, how dull it would be to be a somebody with some’thing’!
    to be or not to be ?…. A nobody with nothing or a somebody with something…?
    Since you have some’thing’ with no.6,
    lemme add the 6th comment here, though it is no’thing’ !
