Inspired by M’s last $100, I just took a look at my own, and the results were upsettingly consistent: so much yoga, so many bagels.
$20.00 Sunday brunch with friends. I had a bagel with cream cheese and lox, and a cappuccino.
$3.71 Light bulbs at Walgreens after all four of the ones in my living room light fixture burned out at once.
$11.17 Dinner at the sushi restaurant next door to my apartment, with AT after we went to yoga together.
$4.69 Doughnut and water from Dunkin Donuts while rushing from a Friday evening yoga class to a Friday night play.
$20.00 Dinner out at an Irish bar after the play. My order was distinctly un-Irish: hamburger, Blue Moon.
$6.31 Two bagels with cream cheese, one coffee - post-yoga breakfast with my friend G on Saturday morning. We usually go to a coffee shop that only takes cash, and I never have any; this time we went somewhere that takes cards, so it was my turn to treat.
$8.18 Chocolate chips, oatmeal - ingredients in cookies I baked for TM’s birthday party (to which, it turned out, every guest had brought a dessert).
$16.43 Advil, orange nail polish at Walgreen’s
$2.50 Bagel & cream cheese at the same coffee shop as a (pre-yoga) afternoon snack.
$6.94 Tampons, a Milky Way bar on my way to an afternoon meeting. Because I am a joke about women.
I think every single stereotype about white girls with bangs has been mentioned in my last few tumbls: tattoos and yoga and whiskey and misplaced nostalgia for the recent past. And The Wire. And Elizabeth Bishop. And Polaroids and organic farming as respite from “getting a job in publishing.”
Not apologizing (and not trying to get out of it by being ironic); just noting.
