Over the years, I became very weary hearing the same answer every time anyone explained what to do to get money when I needed it. Each time, the solution would be offered that I sell drugs, which I couldn’t do or play the lottery, which I wouldn’t do. At several times, I brainstormed some lists of things that would also bring money besides those two things. This is one of those lists that I created in 1995, then added to it when it was being typed up today.
