A Beautiful Thing

When we had previously been talking about pay checks, my co-workers had called their checks 'beautiful'. I was confused. How could a pay check be beautiful?

Now I understand. For the past week, I've been running on fumes. I didn't want to change anymore of my travelers checks and I was completely out of Won. Today...Payday! 2,014,800 Won! And the exchange rate is excellent right now and getting better each day. 931 Won per US dollar.
We are supposed to have eight teachers on staff and we are currently running on only seven. We are getting a lot of overtime hours. January will mark the beginning of winter school which will be even more overtime. I expect my paychecks to get prettier and prettier.
