People always say things like “I could not LIVE without a Starbucks Mocha Peppermint Half Caff Chai Tea.” Okay, they never say that exactly because it sounds revolting, but they say things like that. Earlier today I caught myself thinking that I could not live without live streaming Netflix. Clearly that is crazy talk. I could not live without oxygen or food. Netlfix live streaming is just awesome.
I have spent almost six weeks without air-conditioning. It turns out I can live without a working AC, it just really, really, really sucks.
I am about to go 8 – 10 weeks without a kitchen in my house (we’re remodeling) and my guess is that I will still be alive in September and a kitchen seems like a pretty basic first world staple. I will probably be fatter from eating fast food but I fully expect the entire family to make it to the other side animately existent.
Nobody wants to live without a working sink, but I know for sure that I can do that too.
You may be wondering where this is going. I have made a little list of things that I could live without, if I was forced to do so, or probably even if I needed to budget more, but I would really rather not.
