Tax Day

Pete and I were talking about taxes during dinner last night. Because I am an independent contractor, my taxes are slightly more complicated, so we were discussing how much we're going to owe.

Graceful asked, "What are you guys talking about?"

I answered, "Taxes."

From the other side of the table came a loud, pained groan and then Elegant said, "Oh man... I HATE taxes." [Pause.] "Taxes go to the GOVERNMENT." [Said with much disgust.]

(As it turns out, instead of owing thousands of dollars, we actually got back a few hundred, which has already been turned around and applied to my first quarter taxes for 2007. Easy come, easy go.)
