Blah, blah, blah. I’m broke and the economy is uncertain. I know, we’re all in this together but I was just thinking of some questionable things I’ve spent money on. Money that could be going towards paying my rent. I sure wish I had back the money I spent on:
Car Insurance – I’m probably jinxing myself but I have paid for car insurance for 15 years (except for the 9 months I drove without it) and haven’t needed it once. I wish I could have that money now.
Emergency Surgery – What are they going to do, put my appendix back in?
A Bicycle– I own a bike, I bought it three years ago and for two of those yeas it has sat in my apartment unused with deflated tires. It is a two wheeled monument to wasteful spending.
Lousy Concerts – While I’ve seen more than my fair share of great concerts I’ve also wasted some good money on some awful shows. Like that time Shane McGowan didn’t show up until midnight or that Big Star show when Alex Chilton periodically wandered off stage and generally appeared to be mad at the audience for showing up. Those were just money down the drain. Same goes for every show I’ve ever seen at the Hollywood Bowl, it’s overpriced and overrated. Oh wow, I can bring a picnic? My wife and I can have a sandwich and a bottle of wine at our house while we play records and nobody will call the police if we want to do it while the music plays.
I guess there’s nothing I can do, that money is gone. I hope you haven’t wasted your money.
