My Last $100: Sick in Boston
How’d you spend your last $100, Liz?
$5: Two pints of store brand ice cream. freezer burnt, inedible. I complained and got double my money back. I used this money to buy three pints of Ben & Jerry’s. Best $5 I’ve spent in a long time.
$7: (Post!) validated parking by the Charles, to go to the sailing club
$25: Kleenex, Halls, tea, Advil Cold & Sinus
$3.50: Soup at work’s cafeteria
$4: Round-trip T ride
$9: Beer at networking event, left early so I could be in bed by 8pm
$1.25: Shockers (named ShockTarts when I was a kid, way better name) because I passed an old-timey candy store at Faneuil Hall on my way to the T.
$20: Copay to see doctor
$7: (Post!) validated parking by Tufts Medical Center
$7: Post-insurance medication, still unspent actually. Waiting for me at CVS because I’m annoyed that I spent $52 already on this cough. I will begrudgingly pick it up after work today because:
$250: mental cost of waking up to have a coughing fit at 3am for 4 days straight
