UFO: Unidentified Fund-draining object?

{/literal}{include file="blk:hiccupsblog_header"}{literal}

I’m not an astronomer or an accountant, but I think I’ve discovered a black hole, and my money is slowly and methodically being sucked into this abyss.

It wasn’t noticeable before … $5 here, $10 there, $20 …

Although it seems to have just formed during the past year, it’s getting stronger by the week.

I fondly refer to this vacuum as ”teenager,” more specifically “Katie.”

Her expenses: gas for her car, school fees, snacks with friends, presents for friends, club fees, more food. The latest store run produced Smorz cereal and Powerade. Yum.

I ration the money a little at a time, and I hold her accountable for how she spends it.

Her dad’s solution: Get a job.

My response: Just keep up the good grades.

For now, I’ll keep opening my wallet a little at a time and hope the gravitational pull from this celestial phenomena doesn’t drain all my money.
