Cost of sharing my musical taste with my daughter: Weekly stops to pore over the CD racks at Half Price books together, and maybe $100 in old CDs over 2 years.

Hearing her squee when Queen comes on the radio in the car, and then getting to head bang together at the appropriate time during Bohemian Rhapsody: PRICELESS.



Dinner party. Food and drinks are free but the lines are long. So I’m sitting in a recliner and paying my kids $0.25 per trip to go get me drinks and little plates of appetizers. They are thrilled and keep squeeing, “Now I’m rich!” Best money I’ve ever spent.
