TBWCYL Day 258 - Money for Nothing

Today's task was to send another $18 (the purchase price of The Book) to the Benrik company and in return I would be supplying the workers of Benrik with beer money and food so they can survive. Also promised was the chance at my picture being posted in the next edition of This Book Will Change Your Life.

Well, since that printed 4 years ago and their employees have either died or moved on to bigger and better things, I don't feel it necessary to send them anything. Plus I got my copy at half price I would really only send them $9.

So, I guess I get the day off. I suppose I can write that post about condoms now.

*Updated: Erin suggested I go back to where I bought The Book and buy more things there as a way to spend money so that is just what I did. I got 2 new books, one a graphic novel and one a comic political science book, as well as buying Diana something. Task is now done right.

That is all,

In lieu of the proposed $18 expense, I vote you spend a few extra dollars at Half Price the next time you're there to support their wonderful business concept...I mean, just look at what's happened since you found The Book there. Life-changing, I tell you.

Spend it on pizza, that's always worth it!

In truth, Erin is right. I bought The Book from Half Price Books which means that since it had been bought and sold, I should spend at least the same amount as I first bought at the same store. Good thinking Erin. I will go on the way home and do just that.

Great idea from Erin ... plus you got more books out of it! Winner!
