I see these gig apps come up and I keep thinking I may want to get in on it.

You hear "time is money" a lot but my time is not money. I make a fixed salary whether I work 40 hours or 60, and I haven't yet found a way to actually convert my free time into any sort of profitable endeavor. God knows my music projects don't make net income.

Normally I'd be fine with that, but every so often there's a month like this one where a) I buy my first pair of prescription glasses b) I buy two new tires because one went flat on the freeway c) need to smog and pay registration on my car d) I'm supposed to be saving up for a Japan trip, where the ticket purchase should come next month.

So yeah, right now driving around collecting scooters sounds pretty freakin' nice.
