On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, I made money from my writing for the first time in my life.
I cashed in a savings bond that I received circa 1994 for an essay contest I won in the 6th grade about American inventor Alexander Graham Bell. It was worth $53.40.
I immediately spent $10.14 of said earnings on an overpriced salad for lunch. $9.99 of it went later that day towards a bottle of wine that I was too tired to drink, which remains in my fridge. Today, $4.28 of it bought me a pretty decent sandwich. Would have been a great sandwich with a little salt.
In a moment, I shall go spend $1.93 of it on a cup of coffee.
