|Prompt: How did you make your first dollar? Baby-sitting, paper route or...
My mother gave me an allowance. I would set the table or clean up my room. I was ten. I would buy Barbie doll clothes. Grandpa would always give me money and he got me a gas credit card. I was eight years old and had no idea what you did with it. I just liked the card. Too bad he didn't give me one in my later years. I got a dollar in second grade from the teacher for having 100 book reports done plus my choice of a free book.
I once got a dollar from a friend's grandmother because she told us we had to be quiet for a half hour and no hand gestures. I earned a dollar for that. I baby-sit in high school. I baby sat three boys. One poured ketchup over the other's head and the one boy wore his mother's nightgown to bed. The one kid told dirty jokes. He was eleven. I was seventeen. Nice.
I had a job, well I worked a few times at a Dairy Queen type place and made four dollars a day. This is my early years of how I made money. A dollar bill to a kid was gold. Those were good times. I was rich! Ha! Ha! Barbie never done without. Me, either. Thanks for reading.
