Pinching a Small Fortune

Every morning, I hold the fate of nearly $14,000 in my hand. More accurately, I pinch it. Between my thumb and forefinger. Well, sometimes, because sometimes I grasp it loosely in my whole hand, just to feel that it's there.

And every morning, I get to choose what to do with it. I mean, it's like standing at the craps table with a bunch of chips. Bet it all? Or just hold out and wait it out?

And so it is with the small fortune. Funny, that I don't even act like there's that much at stake, but I get to decide. It rests on me.

I can either keep it the way it is, or I can drive it into oncoming traffic.

hey, if you are having trouble, I'll safe keep it for you. Are those Company's money that you get to make decision on? :)

The last line should be your clue ... the "small fortune" is the value of my GTI.

Driving it into incoming traffic is worth $14K. How often does one get to do that?
