Just a little update since the last time we chatted…

As you know, my car was stolen about 3 weeks ago. It was actually recovered, but it was beaten up so badly the insurance company totaled it. Boooooo, right? Well hang on… That’s not the best part. Last weekend I was headed up to Philly for Eagles Flight Night (an event I was SUUUUPER excited about) and I got into a 4-car pile up on the B/W Parkway. Airbag deployed… I was a bit banged up… Triple A had to come get the rental. So now I have a claim into the insurance company for my stolen car AND the rental that I wrecked. Plus I still have to buy a car.

Basically I’m broke. Very damned, in fact.

Which brings me to my point: I may not know yet how I’m going to get a car in the next week or so. I may be a little late paying all of my a couple bills this month… But I will NEVER, EVER be so broke that I mop up a coke off my kitchen floor and then squeeze it back into a glass and drink it. Because that people, is a choice.

“In these tough times?…” Dude, that’s crackhead sh!t. I tune out of this infomercial at that point EVERY time it comes on. Whose idea was that?

No matter what, I vow to myself here and now that I will never let it get that bad.

The end.

    I can’t believe the writers wrote that end. Whomever did needs to be fired and not allowed to write infomercials again!! That is straight NASTY!

    Ewwwww……why would they do that?! We all have to draw the line somewhere.

    Sorry about your auto-luck but I’m glad you’re okay.

    Tee hee ;) I know right? Plus the dirty water that was already on the mop… YUCK!

    Instead of sand, he should have put relish on the floor, then squeezed the mop out over a hot dog. Not that I would eat it, since the mop probably can’t pick up chopped onion. ‘Cuz I like onions. On my hot dogs, not my mops.

    Glad to hear you’re ok.
