I knew when I married my wife she’s not much of a cook. She told me she couldn’t make pudding because she couldn’t figure how to get two cups of water into the little packets. Yeah, she’s a dumb.
So I decided I would be the cook. And I didn’t want to be an ordinary cook. I wanted to be a master cook, able to make cool things like I see on the TV. So I went out and bought a $2300 oven-range, $1600 fridge, $4000 worth of top line cookware, a blender/food processor, and a total selection of more than 80 spices and herbs. It all set me back more than $15,000.
And I’m using it. More now than ever — because I was fired from my job and have time at home to really cook great food. The problem is I’m still paying for a lot of this great kitchen with a major loss of income. How do I keep the repo man at bay?
I went to Dallas Title Loans, a car title loan company that valued my Saab at more than $14,000. It’s pretty easy to do, all online, approved in an hour, money in a day – real fast cash. I didn’t need that much, but it’s just enough to avoid racking late fees on my credit cards while I wait on some new job to come along. It’s a great back up. And at the end of the day, I’d rather be eating a fine fusion of French and Thai vegetables than bad Jello.
