Money reminds me of a bar of soap. Like soap, money is slippery and hard to keep hold of. A satisfying amount held in your hand shrinks to almost nothing very quickly. Watch it literally slip through your fingers. And in times of desperate need, that little sliver of money you were saving simply cannot be found. Furthermore, the process of earning money is like intimidating men dropping soap on the shower room floor then asking you to pick it up.
Rich men never buy soap, collecting sachets of designer soaps, sandalwood and Presidential musk, supplied for free at boutique hotels. Poor men, on the other hand, must spend precious dollars on family-size blocks of soap, antibacterial and deodorizing, from the supermarket. A good lather is free for those that can afford one and very expensive for those that can't. But whatever your financial situation, when it comes to soap, neither a borrower nor a lender be, as Polonius said. You don't want to be walking around town stinking of bad credit.
