LOL...Jeff, don't use the title as word of the day because I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist; just one I made up.
I'm speaking of being frugal, which Megan definitely is not. Young ones these days seem to have the above attitude. Not that I love the Bratz line of stuff but it seemed to fit the mood.
Back up to Christmas. Megan informed me she wanted an I-Pod. Ok...I didn't and don't have around $300 to blow on one. Becky found an MP3 for $30 some dollars. Hmmmm.....no way did Megan want that. She said to just give her the money I was going to spend. She would use her Christmas money for an I-Pod. Not I-Pods are cool. MP3 players are yesterday's news. Being a cool kid, you don't even consider an MP3.
Not only that, you have to have a cool case to carry this thing in. Neiman Marcus had a Prada for $800....yeah right....but the real bargain was the Coach which sells for about $189. I don't think so. Something has to stop somewhere, and I have to draw the line, especially since I just put $500 in her checking account for books (wouldn't that $250 bargain rate she got the I-Pod for have gone half way toward these books.) Most kids don't think that way.
Joey and I were talking about this on the way home from the doctor's on Wed. I have absolutely no idea what the difference is between the two. Well, he told me. You can only download 1,500 songs on an MP3. LOL...ONLY 1,500. Who in the world could even find 1,500 songs they wanted to download? Jeff..lol..probably you. An I-Pod hold 7,500 songs.....now this totally blows my mind. What she really would have liked but didn't have enough money for was a Sidekick. Now, a Sidekick is that darned I-Pod with the capability of accessing AIM on the internet. Becky has one. Megan was absolutely coveting it at Christmas.
Not enough room in my journal tonight or even the time to begin to relate the car discussion continuously between Christmas and New Year's. She had two options....one of the two that are sitting in my driveway; neither of which she wants. End of discussion in my book but it's going to be a continuing one in hers; I'm sure of that.
The never ending battle continues between this Mama and Baby. Under this hair dye I'm sure is a head of totally gray hair by now..........CHRIS
