Not the Monday I Expected
It is 6am and I awake from a deep sleep. I jump out of bed! Another Monday morning has just begun. I quickly make my way down the stairs and am startled by a horrific smell. If I ignore it, it surely will go away, right?
I make my way to the kitchen through the living room. In the corner of my eye I spot something humungous and gray. I must be dreaming… No time for a second glance, what I need right now is a good old cup of Joe.
What was that oversized gray thing in the living room? Huh? Not my problem. Someone else should have to deal with it!
I look down at my brand new cozy “cotton” pajamas that cost me 125.7% more than the ones I bought last year. You have to pay more for quality, I guess.
Where’s my cup of Joe?
There it is!
I put some 82.6% more expensive “sugar” into my 41.4 percent price inflated cup of “coffee”.
What is that barnyard smell in the living room? Where is maintenance when you need them?
Boy, I am hungry this morning!
First I eat a bowl of “corn” pops. Must be that much better considering they’re 59 percent more expensive than last year. More expensive, but no more filling…
I’m hungry for a bowl of 40.5% higher priced “rice” Krispies. While I’m at it, in case that doesn’t fill me up, why not heat up my 36.1 higher priced “copper” pot so I can also have a +36.6% price adjusted bowl of “oat”meal? Also need to wash all this food down with some 82.5% higher priced orange juice. It tastes fresh squeezed, you know!
Where are those loud footsteps coming from? Why do I smell peanuts?
Man, that smell is driving me crazy. Maintenance? Ughhhhh!
It’s time to get ready for work. It’s sure cold in here, so I turn up that heat that’s costing me 25.1 percent more this year. “Oil” isn’t cheap, you know…
What the heck? I can’t get to the door, something big is blocking the entrance to the living room…I need to get to work to pay for all these more expensive things… Can’t get past this gray thing.
Oh well I didn’t want to go to work anyway!
Sure wish life wasn’t so complex.
I am so thankful Ben Bernanke and the US government keep telling me inflation is non-existent. My mind is at ease. I guess it’s better that way. I can also keep ignoring that big gray thing in the living room…
“Food” for thought
The U.S. government is telling us that inflation doesn’t currently exist, do you believe them?
Do you think the US Dollar will survive this crisis?
What are you doing to prepare for rising food and energy prices?
