My Last Hundred Bucks: Normal Texas Stuff
by Briana Wucinski
Where’d your last hundo go, Briana Wucinski?
$4.93: Starbucks large venti soy latte. It worries me that almost every one of these begins or contains an unnecessary coffee purchase. Then I realize how essential caffeine is to the world and I once again understand.
$15: Gas, because you can’t get anywhere in Texas without a car. Thank you wide open spaces.
$4: I chipped in for tacos with a friend. You also can’t go a week in Texas without tacos.
$25.98: Two bottles of wine I bought for our group of friends. Luckily this was paid back in copious amounts of cocktails at the next bar(s) we attended that evening.
$10: Brewery tour on a Saturday. This was possibly the best money I’ve spent so far, because not only did I get three fancy craft beers, I also got to keep the pint glass. My entire glassware collection has been cultivated from brewery tours’ free pint glasses. I consider it a thrifty bonus to getting day drunk on a Saturday afternoon.
$19: Splitting a very, very large pizza that ended up feeding me for my next three meals.
$24: Spent at various bars on booze that fuels my young 20-something blood. I ended up $4 short at the final bar and my friend had to spot me. Guess I’m out until my next payday.
