Something Astounding

I just got an email from my bank.

They're offering me a credit card.

It looks like an absolutely amazing offer.

But it's a really-really-really dangerous offer.

I'm not going to specify or go into detail, but with the credit limit they are offering me:: on my current budget, if I were to go to the limit, at the rate on that card, I wouldn't even be able to pay the monthly interest on my budget.

It's amazing, but the bank is offering me so much money at super-junk interest rates, that this credit card offer is really, really dangerous.

I've said before that I suspect my bank thinks I should be richer than I actually am. This again shows that.

I wouldn't even be able to pay the interest every month.

I personally suspect that the government takes the lion's share of my earnings, so maybe that's why the bank thinks I should be rich, but I am not.

With that kind of money, I would be able to advertise so hard and if people ripped me off I might be able to hire a lawyer with a credit limit like that.

But it's really-really risky.

Maybe the fact that I'm getting into music might make me seem like a good investment ----- but I'm not sure, though I'm more successful these days than ever before in the past, it still isn't super big or anything.

But yeah. Accepting that credit card offer would be extremely risky.

I probably won't.

In other news, I was at a restaurant with my brother today and we saw someone from church we hadn't seen for a long time.

Not much of a news story, there wasn't much to say when we met ------ but it was a friendly enough encounter.
