Ain't No April Fools Joke


When we last heard from our hero we found out that he was going to be taking up the hobby of poker again.  There were cheers from the audience and everyone was happy.

Everyone except for the wife, that is.  

Yes, yes.  There was some information that was left out of our previous post and that is the true reason why our hero is playing poker again (instead of taking up a second job).

Pot Stocks.

Hear me out now.

Investing is a tricky thing and when I first started to make investments the stock market was pointed in an upwards direction.  As I was making daily profits I started to feel more and more untouchable and then dipped into our savings account so that I could invest more and more so that I could, in a few months, show the wife how much I turned our savings into.

The best laid plans of mice and men.

Turns out you shouldn't be getting your investing advice from the Reddit Penny Stocks forum.
Totally a bad idea.

Sometimes you make a mistake and you live with it.
Sometimes you fuck up so royally you are on the verge of getting kicked out of your own home.

I've been given a year to replenish the savings account. 

No Stress, right?

Over the course of the next year I will detail my trials and tribulations of trying to recover the money I lost.  Lucky you (all of you), y'all got a front row seat to the train wreck that is about to happen.

If at any point you aren't entertained then please let me know and I'll look for a new direction to take this.

Tomorrow, after video game time with my boy, I'll start working on the day one post and how the session went.

The Local Fish is back and swimming with sharks baby!


  1. You remind me of the story of the boy who lost his allowance gambling. The next day he went back with all his savings trying to win his money back. When he arrived home broke he told his Mommy what happened. She proceed to beat the snot of him! She told him, "I am not beating you for losing, but for trying to win it back!"
