Lost everything I had in the flavored Q-tip business. Had to start over. Began collecting coupons. Hoarding them, really. Any and all coupons I could get. Almost all for items I knew going in I would never buy.

Stuff like boat covers and illustrated accounts of the Korean War: Year One.
Yet I kept at it. Set up shop in a Kohl’s dept store bathroom stall. Even had a phone line installed. Now I supervise 45 lessors and three mobile furnaces.

I attribute all of it to my ability to induce back spasms in people through the power of sheer thought.
