Leaving Money In Books

In theory, leaving money in books isn’t such a bad idea. (What kind of thief is going to wipe your shelves clean?)

Unless your younger cousin comes over, wants to read, and finds money in a book you own.

This happened to me today. I’m not denying it.

In fact I was the one who recommended the book to him. That was before I knew I left ten dollars in there.

Now I’m ten dollars poorer.

And this is why I don’t donate or give my babies away.

Happy Birthday Poem (For Cousin With Rhyme)

Because of the success with my previous birthday poems, I decided to write another one—this time it’ll be dedicated to my older cousin.

AC: Happy birthday. Have a good one. Continue working hard.

Happy Birthday Cake + Candles

Congratulations on turning a year older

You’re now so much wiser

I’ve watched you grow up so tall

Remember when we were small


You’ve made me laugh pointlessly

As we wandered through our childhood aimlessly

I hope from each other we continue to learn

Don’t forget all those memories I still yearn


I know one day we’ll part ways

But until then we shall cherish these days

Happy birthday tonight

Live it up with delight
