What’s in your wallet ???



This week's one-word prompt comes from Deana who linked up in our Meet Your Fellow Trifectans tab (if you haven't done so yet, hop to it) and suggested this gem:

JUGGLE (transitive verb)
3: to handle or deal with usually several things (as obligations) at one time so as to satisfy often competing requirements <juggle the responsibilities of family life and full-time job — Jane S. Gould>


Doing The Juggle
Mercy, Mercy
In Sickness As In Health

In Health

Credit

Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle
Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle

I don’t want to drop the ball

Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle

In Sickness

I Have Fallen

Oops, Opps, Opps, Opps, Opps, Opps
Oops, Opps, Opps, Opps, Opps, Opps

And I Can’t Get Up

Oops, Opps, Opps, Opps, Opps, Opps

I Dropped All The Balls

Creditors tell Momma all about it
Mother always liked creditors best

Cash

Where did all that money come from
I did not think I had it in my wallet
What’s in your wallet

Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle
Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle
Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle

Until the next time they let me play
Again

Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle, Juggle

    1. Credit used to work as such when there was an abundance of credit. It was to easy qualify and there were not any computers at the stores to check if you were over your limit. The retailer had to make a phone call if they were suspicious. Christmas was truly Christmas because it was impossible to verify anyone.

      In the event you can not pay your credit card debt, because it is an unsecured debt, it is only reported to the 3 credit agencies, and is written off.

      Suddenly, you had to pay for most things with cash or check. Now, you can choose a debit card in place of a credit card, and funds will be transferred out of your checking account, same as cash.

      Because of no credit card debt, you have much more cash to work with, but you have to live within your means.

      After the statuette of limitations expires your credit report is cleared like the year of Jubilee. In the past you would be courted by credit card companies to apply for credit. Once again you could have multiple credit cards.

  4. Life is about juggling, I think. If we're lucky we don't drop all the balls at once!

    1. Well, I often have to drop all the balls at once but that is no problem for me. I just get some more balls. Life is about balls.

  5. Reads like a jazzy spoken piece. Love the word play.

    Nagging doubt: is the Oops Opps a typo or is Opps for opportunities?

    1. Thank you, but here in the US credit cards was free money for those that knew how to use them. Even Hillary and Obama used other people’s credit cards to finance their Presidential campaigns to the tune of multi-millions of dollars that they did not have to pay back. It was reported on the news.
