My Last Hundred Bucks: Rum, Sorbet, and Burlesque

by Marion Johnson

$100! It is a lot of money, and yet, it is also not a lot of money at all. Where did your last hundred bucks go, Marion Johnson?

$27.49: A bottle of Kraken spiced rum, to make delicious dark & stormies/spike my chai with

$5: Transcript fee from college, so they’ll send my transcript to my grad school

$ 17.30: Wine, lemonade, ciabatta, frozen peas, mango sorbet, and fresh mozzarella from Whole Foods. Shockingly, the mango sorbet was the most expensive thing, at $4.99

$12.18: Memphis barbecue sauce, apple cider vinegar, chicken broth, and arborio rice from Harris Teeter

$10.18: Finished out a long week with a salmon bento box from Teaism.

$10: One ticket to Whedonism!, a Joss Whedon-themed burlesque show at Red Palace

$5: Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold at Whedonism!

$15.09: Drunken noodles, edamame, and tip at a “welcome interns” lunch, at Banana Leaves. (Their website has a tiny dancing banana on it. The little guy is killin it.)
