D and I are both pretty good with money. I mean, we both came into the marriage with zero debt. We kept our separate banking accounts, but we put the other person on the account, so we both have access to all the money--but his check goes to his bank, and my check (such as it is) goes to mine. Well, anyway--that's more than you wanted to know, huh? I started with that in order to say that we are both experiencing some guilt because of our over-spending (?) this week.
We bought ourselves iPhones from Apple.
As we walked into the AT&T store, D said, "We'll just talk to someone today and get the numbers, then decide later. We don't need to buy anything today."
"Right," says I.
"Good," says he.
The young salesman let us hold one--to test it out.
Not 10 second after the demo, D turns to me and says,"Well, should we go ahead?"
"Why not?" I say. And away we went!
Totally indulgent behavior, huh? But, oh, are they ever fun.
Now, I am never without my calendar...internet...email...maps so I'll never get lost again...weather conditions so I'll know not to get out and get lost in the first place...a camera....i-Tunes which I'll rarely use...texting which I'll never use...a calculator which you never know when you'll need...You Tube in case I'm ever on it....clock, another one of which is always handy, right?....and stock reports which...someday I might care about.
I thoroughly enjoy spending money on things that I totally need.
