My Mascot..

For the last 2 years, I have had a special friend. Rescued from the trash, my friend Joe has been my sounding board. He sits next to me on my computer speaker holding a rolled up dollar bill and 2 pennies. The money represents the millions of dollars I desire to make online. The determined look in Joe's eyes makes me feel confident that he is in deep concentration putting my latest plan into action. Joe is the general of my internet army.

I know it is childish and superstitious to have a mascot to help me run my business, but I am afraid to tell Joe he is not pulling his weight. I have been reasonably successful, so who's to say that Joe hasn't helped? I am afraid that if I was to get rid of him and act like a responsible adult, that my business would fold up and disappear. So for now Joe lives and thrives sitting on a speaker on my computer desk gazing intently at the monitor. Go Joe!!

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle - GIJOE, the Great American Hero, GIJOE is thererere, GIJOE... Sorry, every time, it's like OCD or something with me.
Also, where Joe is holding your 2cents, it kinda looks like he might be holding his own if you know what I mean...
