We could say the same thing about lots of other hobbys that don't even have the illusion of making money!
Golfing? Walking around on a big yard for miles and miles in the hot sun to hit a little ball into a hole? And pay a big fee for the privilage of doing so? And you're going to spend all day Saturday doing it?
Deer Hunting? You mean you're going to get up before the butt crack of dawn just to sit in a tree hoping to shoot a deer? And for all of that uncomfort, you still might come home empty handed?
And you paid HOW much for that equipment?
Puttering in the Flower Beds? You mean you're going to kill your back and legs and hands by digging in dirt and messing around with flowers in the hot son on a Saturday? why would you do all of that work and not get paid for it?
Scrapbooking? You're going to spend a butt load of money to put pictures in an album in a 'fancy' way just so they can still be just some pictures in an albums? (In my personal opinion, this has GOT to be the biggest waste of time that I'll never get back in my life!)
Camping? You mean you're going to pay a fee to go to a camp site, leave an air conditioned comforatble home to sleep on dirt and cook in a primitive way? And you paid how much for the euipment to do this?
You're going to spend ALL DAY volunteering in a soup kitchen? And not get paid for it?
Yeah .... we're going to do all of that. Because we ENJOY it! And when we're all done with our soup kitchen duty, and our scrapbooking, and our camping with our family, and making our house look pretty with the flower beds, then we're ALSO going to enjoy the time we spend making our cakes.
And we're going to do it Just Because!
