Running an empire can be expensive, even if that empire is just in my head. Orange pants don't buy themselves. Luckily, empires come with taxes. The taxes in Sarakasticland...Sarkasticville...what is that place called? Must work on a better name, although I do like Orange Minotar or "please don't read the lampshade". Anyways, our taxes in please "don't read the lampshade" are as follows:
The Stupid Tax: This is the price that stupid people pay me for having to deal with them. For instance, if you leave your CD's at my apartment, & then you are a jerk to my roommate & make her cry, I probably won't be able to find your CD's when you come over. I definitely won't call you up & ask you if you want your CD's back. If you are my roommate & you don't help out around the house, I will eat the cookies you leave on the counter. It's the price I exact as the maid. Any protestations over the name stupid tax will increase in a higher rate of taxation.
The Bathroom Tax: This tax was instituted in a family of 10 with one bathroom. Granted, we usually weren't all at home at the same time, but still 5 adults & one bathroom makes things tricky. People understandably, are very protective about their bathroom time. I will declare the bathroom the domain of "Please don't read the lampshade" & institute a ten dollar toll for all those who enter.
Who said taxes aren't fun? Check out Stacy's post about taxes as well. Any suggestions for the naming of my empire would really be appreciated.
