Random Advice

I was walking down Colorado Blvd. the other day, by myself enjoying the beautiful day, when I ran into the strangest woman. She introduced herself to me and then proceeded to walk about three blocks with me. I got some of the most depressing advice I’ve ever received in my life from her:

It’s all about money. Seriously, make all the money you can. Get on all those internet site money-making things and just work hard and invest. Cause unless you own a home and have money for things you like you’re just at the mercy of others. Oh – and another thing – once you hit about 35, unless you’re a real powerhouse rich and successful business woman the cutes wear off and you won’t be good for anything but living next door to some Puerto Ricans, all 35 stuffed in a house burglarizing you whatever chance they get. I’m serious. I’m 56 – I know. That’s not what you want to hear but it’s true.

And then she ended this random meet and greet/advice giving session with a “God Bless.”
