I’ve won the replacement Palm IIIxe on eBay, and it’s going to cost me $7.99 plus $7.50 shipping. I was the only bidder. A very good price, to be sure, and it only underscores the futility of picking one out of my pocket, if indeed such a thing has happened.
Good luck trying to sell the one you took from me, buster! It is my personal policy not to buy more or better stuff than I can tolerate losing, and that policy is going to win the day.
Still, the $15.49 I spent today worries me. It could be the fluttering butterfly that can cause one thing and the next and the next until finally I get a financial tornado that wipes out the January rent payment. Already, in the transfer of my money over from one account to the next, I let the bank officer put me on this Points deal that starts a savings account that transfers $25 per month over from checking, and I don’t know for sure if I’m going to be getting that much of a raise this month.
Incidentally, it’ll be my two year anniversary in two days. My annual review comes up. Wish me luck.
