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.

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
