On the subject of the time frame for paying off debt...

Debt is like poop. No one likes poop, but we all generate it. You can either go to the bathroom now or later, but you know getting rid of it sooner then later always makes you feel better.

Below is my original replay to my wife asking me if we should pay off our car quickly or over the original payment period:
"Its like deciding to poop now or later. Eithor way your going to poop and its not that fun to sit and contemplate pooping. But, in the end (pun sort of intended), getting it out of the way sooner then later always feels better."

  1. That's one of the most . . . evocative metaphors for debt I've ever heard. I think I like it.
