On Luxuries

“When I first moved to New York I bought VOGUE instead of dinner. I just felt it fed me more.” – Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City

When I read that quote, I immediately knew my answer:   it’s having  simple luxuries like a really good cup of coffee to start my day.  Nothing better than a hearty, robust cup of Joe in the wee morning hours.   Or afternoon. Or after a great meal!

Do you really want to hurt me? google.images.com

I’ll happily spend a Visa gift card downloading MP3 music from Amazon.   Who needs the whole CD when Boy George only had a few good dance songs anyways?  Do you really want to hurt me? Do you really want to make cry?

I’ll happily take the plunge for a box of Clementine oranges.

I’ll spend my last bit of Christmas money in the book store … and take a couple of hours to do it.

I’ll skip dessert and save the calories for a really great bar burger shared with hubbs;  I’ll languish over a cold Killians, too.

I’ll pass on home cooking, jewelry and purse parties and instead, I’ll  lose an afternoon in the kitchen gadget section of “Bed, Bath and Beyond.” Lord, have mercy.

Oh, my darling, Clementine! Google.images.com

I’ll happily haggle with local farmers over fresh produce.  And I’ll come home with more than I can fit in the fridge.  Crazy, I know.

Yep, it’s the simple things.

What luxury will you happily spend money on?
