there’s no winning

14Jun08

Living in London has its perks; the constant concern over money and expenses is not one of them. It’s amazing to me how much money can fly out of my hands even without being particularly extravagant. Now that I’m settling in, I’m making a much more conscious effort to stick to my daily budget.

A friend and I went to a local burger restaurant for dinner last night and you can imagine my excitement when I was given a “two for one burger” coupon for that restaurant as we walked into the shopping center. My friend and I were ecstatic that we got out of the restaurant with a £12 bill. But then, in the movie theater, pretty much at the same time, we both thought: ‘Wait a minute, we just spent $24 on two burgers, one order of fries, and one soda!”
