This week Dan is standing in for Linda and this is what he has set for SoCS this week.
Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cent/scent/sent.” Use them in any form you like. Use one, use two or use them all. Bonus points if you use all three, and Cheryl will put your next drink on David’s tab. I know, you used to get bonus points for two, but inflation… Enjoy!
What is the value of one cent you ask?
In my country, one dollar is equal to 212 Rs as of today. It’s both inflation and devaluation of our currency that we are losing ground against the dollar and other currencies.
When the sharks in water sense an injured person, they are attracted to the scent of the blood. And similarly, opportunists are moving in to take advantage of this deteriorating scenario in our country. They are buying foreign currency and driving up the value of the dollar even further. Meanwhile, our economy is suffering badly and anything that is imported has at least doubled in price.
Only the money sent by the overseas Pakistanis is helping us stay afloat. It’s a tragic scenario because it needn’t be like this. All these corrupt politicians are to be blamed for this disaster.
I’m sorry that this is a bleak post but the prompts took my mind here.
