Compulsive Saving

The following post has been exaggerated to match my emotions rather than to match facts.

Seriously! I was so good today I had to share. It started with having a rotten day at work. Everything went wrong and I worked late. So I left work and went to a store to look at desks for work. Not to look at anything that I should buy. I found several clearance items that I wanted SO much. But I passed them up because I am not spending this month. Why did I decide to do this??? I went to another store…still more things I needed, wanted, and on clearance. WHY? WHY AM I NOT SPENDING MONEY?!?!?! Then I went to another store and thus the saga continued. Finally I headed home. Now it was really late. I was starving. Tired. And I had passed up quite a few purchases. Tons of purchases (this is the point where I added the disclaimer at the beginning of this post, so now I have the freedom to exaggerate even more). Thousands of dollars of savings!!! So I deserved fast food. I wanted fast food. I didn’t want leftover pork. I didn’t want frozen burritos. I didn’t want food I already owned. I wanted fast good. (I reread this post after publishing it and found this typo. But after considering it for a moment I have decided to leave it. I want fast food. But fast food is fast and good. So it fits). And Buffalos has cheap wings on Thursday.

I went straight home.

I don’t think you understand the accomplishment this was for me. In fact, part of why I didn’t go to fast food was so I could blog about this accomplishment. So I demand your respect. Your admiration. Your comments saying that I did something utterly amazing. Thank you in advance.

How do you explain yourself in a short paragraph. What should I talk about? My love for Jesus? The fact that I am fascinated with tea and all that comes along with it? Should I explain that I am single? How do I capture my life in such a brief moment and still make it sound interesting?
