I married Miss Right. I just didn’t know her first name was Always.
Like the day last August when I was enjoying our local Dallas favorite, Beer Nuts, with a beer or three while watching the Bears play. She said, “wow, it would be nice to go up to Dallas for some shopping and to see the Bears lose.” I had never actually been to a game at Soldier Field, and kinda said something about that in her direction to the affirmative. It was a feeling, not a commitment.
Next thing I know she has us locked into a hotel, she bought me a ticket, a single ticket, to see them lose. She didn’t know it was a regular losing season and that it’s not the same thing going to a game by yourself. And she decided she was therefore entitled to some holiday spending while I was at the game.
Fast forward to the new year, and the Credit Card bill arrives. Holy schmoly. Those bills from Nordstroms, Macy’s and Bloomingdales added up. And I’m working about 1/2 as much now with this economy. So the ball and chain tells me we have a solution, given that our credit is destroyed and we can’t pay that credit card bill. It’s with Car Title Loans in Dallas, where we can get cash from the value of my car, and pay it back on my own time. A car title loan is pretty easy and quick on the Internet.
She really always does have an idea. The “right” idea too, sometimes.
