My gullible self finally fell for it. It was about three in the morning about a month ago, and I couldn’t help myself–I bought a Magic Bullet.
It sounded so awesome I just couldn’t pass it up, and they would send me two for the price of one. So I called and ordered it, and just today it arrived in the mail. I was like the proverbial kid on Christmas morning. I was so happy. I just can’t wait to play with my new toy.
I’ll make quesadillas and salsa and margaritas (virgin of course, I’m not twenty-one!) and all sorts of wonderful things. I just hope this doesn’t turn out to be another item that I’ll end up never using and donating it to charity in a few years during a junk purging process.
When I ordered it I didn’t know who I would give the second one to, but one of my best friends and her husband live not too far from me now, and she has always wanted one but never had the money, so I will give it to her, so long as she comes to pick it up.
I probably could have spent the money on something else, but now I have a kitchen appliance. It is a blender and a juicer and so many other things and dammit I just wanted one! Oh well, at least I don’t buy everything I see on TV. I can’t wait to use it, though.
I think every once in a while it is okay to waste my money on myself, to buy something I want even if I cannot wholly justify the expense. After all, what the fuck am I busting my ass for at my miserable job if not to buy more stuff? Otherwise shouldn’t I just quit?
I mean, lots of people live on the streets with nothing at all and they are perfectly fine aren’t they? So what if they starve to death and freeze to death, right? I could live like that, if I really wanted to, but I don’t. I want stuff.
I mean, first its the roof over my head and the clothing on my back, but it has to be a fancy roof and nice clothing and maybe lots of accessories on me and nice things under the roof…I don’t know. Maybe I’m being too greedy here, but I like to be able to buy what I want. I know you can’t always get what you want, but I can try, right?
