穷人日记

My dear readers, pardon the trepidation in my shaking voice – for I just made a horrifying discovery.

I withdraw $40 from the ubiquitous ATM every three to four days.

And I just spent $28 on a little black dress online.

I used to raise one eyebrow with scorn and disbelief whenever people tell me they record their expenses everyday. (The trouble!) Now I wish I’d done that. I wonder where all my money went.

I know one of the reasons: a handsome amount of my shrinking assets is scattered in the hands of friends who’ve yet to pay me for birthday presents they chipped in to buy.

But that doesn’t properly justify my poverty. Haven’t I been frugal enough!!! I was empty-handed while Sheena came home with four bags of shopping that day!

Excuse me while I wring my hands with the worrying prospect of an ascetic (read: non-hedonistic) lifestyle looming ahead.
