The Wedding Part 3
I’ve always been a pretty frugal guy. As a kid my parents never spanked me or anything like that for punishment, I had monetary penalties for bad behavior. Getting fined a quarter was a pretty big deal for a kid that made a dime a day vacuuming the house.
It also led to me realizing what I felt was worth money and what wasn’t. I distinctly recall buying a lego car for four dollars and after putting it together, playing with it, and becoming bored with it after a few hours I was horrified that I spent money on it. Not just money though, almost a month and a half of work.
For two hours of fun.
Since then I’ve been quite reluctant to purchase anything besides cheap video games because I realized that the monetary input vs. the hourly joy/entertainment value was the highest out of anything else I could purchase.
Jeez, this was supposed to trail into something about weddings. Oh well, the more you know…
