Not a sonnet

I haven’t posted any sonnets for a while.  I also write non-sonnets!  Here’s a fun one to make a Monday morning a bit lighter.

I’d rather be with someone.

I’d rather be with someone who’s a laugh a minute than a dollar a second.
I’d rather be with someone who’s good in bed than god at the bank.
I’d rather be with someone who’d prefer to watch the sun go down than the dollar rise.
I’d rather be with someone who tries to make me happy than who’d try to buy me happiness.
I’d rather be with someone who’s a good kisser than a good spender.
I’d rather be with someone who’d prefer to keep me warm at night than buy me a mansion in the sun.
I’d rather be with someone who’ll dance with me than bring me diamonds.
I’d rather be with someone who’s good company than who’d buy me a company.
I’d rather be with someone who’s got a good heart than a good portfolio.
I’d rather be with someone who’s my honey pie than my sugar daddy.
I’d rather be with someone who’s an equal than an equals.
I’d rather be with someone who’s well read than wealthy.
I’d rather be with someone who’s likable than loaded.
I’d rather be with someone who’s intelligent than in clover.
I’d rather be with someone who’ll say I need a face-lift because he wants to make me smile.
I’d rather be with someone who’ll take me to the ball game than buy the team.
I’d rather be with someone who’ll rent us a row boat than buy a yacht.
I’d rather be with someone who’s still values our relationship when we’re broke.
I’d rather be with someone who’s real than rich.
I don’t want to be with someone who’s valued in millions, I want to be with someone who’s priceless.

Money laundering…

As a person concerned with the drought, I will usually take home unused water in my reusable water cups from shows to use in places like the kettle, plants etc.  So out of habit I did this even though ‘home’ this weekend is Econolodge.  As it was a bitterly cold day, I hadn’t consumed all the water and a full cup remained in the cooler.  As the show is on streets, I not only took home my planner but also the little bag of change plus money from some cash sales.  All these are jammed into the now-almost-empty cooler, so that the remaining water cup doesn’t tip over in the cooler.

On the turn into the driveway at Econolodge, the entire cooler tipped over in the footwell.  The planner escaped the flood, but the money bag didn’t.  So when I got to my room, the money had all been nicely laundered for me.  Cool wash, no soap, short cycle. It’s not a great concern though – money dries out pretty quickly, especially when laid on top of the heater above the sign that says ‘Do not lay anything on top of the heater to dry’.  I’m just glad at this point it’s Econolodge and I don’t have to ‘splain anything to room service.

It does look a little wrinkly though, perhaps I should iron it.  Don’t get excited though, there are a lot of singles in there.
