An Interview with XMFPixy

Last updated: 11/27/1999
The Fool:
Share with us your best money-saving secret. Do you cut coupons? Bring your own candy bars to movies? Shop on Wednesday and pretend you're over 65?
I never spend it. When bills arrive, I cross out my name, write in "Department of Defense" and forward them to the Pentagon. Someone there subjects them to an extensive audit process and then pays them. This procedure has worked like a charm for the past 25 years.
The Fool:
Tell us about your greatest personal success, not necessarily finance related.
I once won an argument with my spouse.
The Fool:
What's your greatest athletic achievement? Little League champ? Ran a marathon? Did 4 consecutive sit-ups?
Wiggling my ears while standing on my head.
