so, i am sitting here writing this, and i am eating shelled and salted edamame. but when i tell you that i was thisclose to ordering taco bell tonight, believe that if i had been any closer i would have heard “welcome to taco bell, may i take your order?” but thankfully i swerved across three lanes of traffic (possible because everyone in nashville goes to bed at 9 pm, so there were no cars on the road) just in time to avoid SPENDING MONEY.
annnyway. let me break it down for you, and help you understand how i was going to justify this purchase.
i went to a show tonight. i determined that shows are one thing i am going to have to keep spending money on. i really enjoy contributing to the nashville feed, but if i don’t go to shows, i don’t have so much to write about.
the cover charge was $7, and the vodka collins and tip was $7.50. i consider the drink a part of my cover, so let’s just say it was $15 for the show. this means that now i have reduced the unaccounted-for cash floating in my wallet to the amount of about $17.
around the time i was finishing my drink, i realized i had not eaten dinner. and i was HUNGRY.
so, after i left the show, i battled traffic and drove in circles for about eight minutes before finding a way out of downtown. and that was when i started plotting my expenditure. i considered the cash. the unmarked bills. untraceable. they were never in my bank account. i had this cash BEFORE i started this no spending thing. it’s exempt. i want nachos bellgrande. i will eat it in my car. nobody has to know, even.
what? seriously. i am considering sneak buying and eating taco bell. this is a p-r-o-b-l-e-m. that’s why i swerved the car. and i talked myself down. i knew i had enough food in the house. for crying out loud, if i was that close to eating my arm off, i could just crack open a jar of pickles and eat a few while i was cooking something. or, i could drink a glass of soymilk.
anything but making illicit fast food purchases and hiding them from the internet.
i think that about sums it up.
