And I love spending money. I like to get manicures, pedicures, messages, clothes, and new shoes. (Whoever said that diamonds are a girl's best friend was wrong. No, shoes are a girl's best friend. And cash.) I also love spending money on people I love and spending money to see the world.
But there's a big old catch to my love of money. I love spending MY money, cash that I earned. I feel proud of where I came from and the hard work into getting to where I am. I've never once desired to marry a rich man and be kept. No sir. That ain't the life for me. Nor do I want to die with a lot of money. I like money because of the things you can do with it, but, if I'm lucky, I'll die with 50cents in the bank and a valt full of expriences.
