Clearing Space

A lotta people wonder how a handsome, well-well-paid lobbyist such as
m'self could have constant money troubles.
An object lesson:
Observe a storage space. Not as small as it appears in the photo, but
not large.
I rented it for over thirteen years.
I vacated yesterday.
When I finally moved stuff out, I realized I'd stored on mini-fridge,
my dad's toolcase, a bass cabinet with head, and boxes of books and
vinyl LPs.

This post has been sitting out there for days, with the punchline removed, excised, dropped.  Missing.

It should read:

vinyl LPs.

Total Cost:   $35,139.00

However, if memory serves, you have SAVED even more $$ than that in a much SHORTER period of time since the stopping of the can't-believe-I'm-saying-this-in-front-of ... thing. Just sayin'. So in actuality, you're ahead of the game. In a manner of speaking.

chick, I like the way you think

but unfortunately, I can also look at it this way:

had I survived but continued drinking the Jose Cuervo, I'da spent $40, 398.50 as of today*.

So yeah, I'm up.

BUT, I could also be holding my $75,537.50


which is, as they say, a lotta cheddar

Point taken, sir, point taken.

(At least there was vinyl music involved. I say, 'thums up' to the snap crackle pop of old record albums.)
