My Last Hundred Bucks: Things Add Up
by Audrey Ference
How’d you spend your last hundo, Audrey Ference?
$10: Two iced lattes with tip. I know it is stupid to pay that much for coffee but I don’t drink alcohol these days, so fancy coffee is my treat to myself.
$35: Indian food from Seamless. I should cook, I know, I’m very lazy. But it’s enough Indian food to last for like three days!
$2: Parking meter, because the one chick from my book club happens to live in the weirdest, parking spot-less-est part of Ditmas Park in Brooklyn. Who ever would’ve thought you couldn’t find parking in Ditmas Park!
$12: Wine for my friends who made me a nice dinner. Thanks friends.
$8: Netflix monthly payment. God, I sound so boring. I am usually doing more interesting stuff than this, I swear.
The rest, and then some: IKEA. Oh god, IKEA. I went in thinking it would be like $80 and walked out spending $250. They have such nice little frames and pillows and fancy things that seem cheap but are not in aggregate.
Audrey Ference lives in New York.
