Here are a few words to introduce the topic: “a few words.” Okay, now that we’ve taken care of the introduction…
I could buy a new house with the grand entrance, a fancy pool, and a flashy marbled kitchen… but I’d rather spend that money on the road than to spend the dough to fix the marbled floors as it is highly likely I’d chip it with my head.
I could upgrade my furniture from hand-me-downs I bought from my roommate… but my cat would destroy it anyway and I need to save that money for tickets to a place I’ve never been.
I could settle down, pop out a few kids via my wife, and stop messing around… but kids are expensive, I’m super immature, and I love jumping into natural pools (too much) in national parks I haven’t visited yet.
I could buy a new luxury car so my wife and I don’t have to share the one Subaru we currently own… but fancy cars are too nice. I’d probably end up driving too fast without realizing it because it’s so quiet and wind up in jail. I’d rather spend that money on Uber rides to attractions we’ve never seen.
I could refresh my wardrobe with the high-end stuff to match my shiny watch and eye-blinding belt… but mustard stains would accentuate the new shirt in no time and I’d rather use that money to visit silk factories in China to learn if I could eat silkworms for breakfast.
