I'm sitting here in front of the computer, alright, but I haven't been blogging. I've been working on our taxes. Pfffft. This annual torture fest is made all the more complicated this year by the fact that I must prepare a separate return for my 10-year-old daughter. She received a paycheck in 2010. An actual paycheck with money taken out for such necessities as Social Security, a thriving program that I'm sure will still be in existence when my child reaches her age of retirement. But I prepare her tax return with love and pride, for it is the result of payment for her starring role in a series of television ads. And by "starring role," I mean . . . well, you can see for yourself:
What? You didn't see my little movie star? Look again at the :20 mark. That's the back of her head as she high-fives an authority figure. SO WORTH filing an additional tax return.
