Finding Freedom

How quickly can a fool find his money again?

I currently have a whole bunch of debt. Hmm...I wonder how much I could get for my kidneys?

I am at home today, taking a sick day because, well, I just didn't feel like my body was working like it was supposed to when I woke up.

When I think about it, besides the obvious immediate gratification of not having to work when you don't feel like it and getting paid, in my mind, at least, it seems that the company cares for me enough to take care of me when I'm not feeling well. This, in turn, increases my morale and makes me very glad and thankful to have the job that I have, even if I don't particularly enjoy it.

Because I'm thankful for my job, I'm more likely to do it well than if I were not thankful for my job, which, I imagine, is kind of why they have these policies.

It's kind of interesting to reflect on how things that don't specifically make sense in conjunction with one another (not working and getting paid) make sense when you think about them in a broader context.
