Mommy has always had a problem managing her finances. Frankly, Samson and I don't think she spends enough on toys for us, but that's only a small part of the problem. She has decided to follow The Ball Guy's advice and work on a budget for her spending. We're all a little surprised that she's actually listening to The Ball Guy!
As part of the budget, Samson and I are going to be receiving a weekly allowance. We will be allowed to spend it on whatever or whomever we want! The allowance is for everything above and beyond our food, shelter and vet bills (and we're pretty sure Mom will still buy us some toys). So, in other words, it's for toys! She's hoping that we will be charitable and not too greedy (she was looking pointedly at me when she said that...I don't know why).
Mommy suggested the weekly sum to be $3.00 each. That's ridiculous; that doesn't even cover the cost of one bag of 4 soccer balls ($3.69 CDN + tax). I think $10.00 a week is a little more in the ball park. I've sent Samson to her to do the buttering up since compromise is not one of my strong suits. I told him to use whatever means he has at his disposal, especially the yawn-squeak. I have no idea why, but she turns to mush every time he makes that absurd noise.
We'll let you know what the final number is as soon as we can all agree on an amount. Let's just hope that Samson's charms will be profitable for us!
P.S. I've gotten the (ever-willing) Ball Guy, to help transcribe this blog, as I don't want Mommy to get wind of my tactics while we're in discussions.
