Eighty Dollars

What does $80 buy you these days?

Not as much as it used to, that’s for sure.

But for $80 you can get a cute pair of shoes.

You could get a cute purse to go with those shoes.

You could get a designer pair of jeans to go with said cute shoes and cute purse.

For you guys out there, you could buy a round of golf with cart, drinks and lunch.

Or you could get a Grip-Rite 1 In. Narrow Crown Stapler 18 Gauge from Home Depot….whatever the heck that is.

And, $80 is how much we spent on Sunday to take our family of 5 to the movies, complete with popcorn drinks and candy.

$80 is also how much it costs to fill my son’s insulin prescription every couple of months. (We are lucky and have insurance so for many it is much, much more.)

$80 to keep my son alive.

Seems ironic that I could either buy a new pair of shoes, or keep my son alive.
