I did wonder about listing balancing my checkbook as one of my hobbies. But it seems reasonable considering how much I adore keeping track of money.
Doesn't everyone feel a little more lighthearted when they open their mailbox and see that their monthly bank statement has arrived? Doesn't everyone take the first available opportunity to rush to their computers and open up Quickbooks? Doesn't everyone enjoy painstakingly entering every single transaction involving cash or credit or a check into their accounting program? Doesn't everyone get the same thrill, that rush of satisfaction, that splendiferous glow of success, when, after checking off that last transaction on the statement, the bottom line of the reconciliation reads "$0.00 difference"?
