$270 Dollars and a Poetry Book

So today I got my first paycheck from my new job. $270 and 96 cents. Hallelujah! Life is good. Paychecks are good. Money is good. So lets see. I'll put $270 aside for rent, $270 for food, $270 for student loans, $270 for credit cards, $270 for a new dress and those pink shoes I've been talking about. Wait a minute. Is something screwy or are my math skills not working out again?

Regardless. I'll put addition in suspension for a moment and put $10 of the $270 aside for a poetry book. I hope the poetry gods will be pleased. Now I have $260 for rent, $260 for food, $260 for student loans...
