  • Just today I was thinking...

    I wonder what life would be like without having to prepare taxes, fill out FAFSA forms for my son's student loans, without the 'demand to pay' I got from the state last week saying that I didn't pay sales tax in 2009...but I did (I have the proof) and now I have to spend whatever time it takes to prove it (my banker says this happens all the time?), end of the month bills, all of the other usual and unusual day-to-day administrative details...

    And then along comes a Cowbird story about it...
