Something I Don't Do Every Day

In a sense, today's a scary day. I'll be doing something I've never done
before. In a move reminiscent of that US governor, though hopefully much
less contraversial, I'll be putting my credit card down on the counter
and getting just about six grand charged to it. I know for some of you
that kind of money is nothing, but to me it represents years and years
of saving and denying myself some of the things I've wanted.

That's right, today I get my hearing aids. I have to pay up front, but
they do come with a 45-day trial period. But it's scary. I still
remember being a kid and my dad trying to teach me the value of a
dollar, let alone six thousand of them. But today's the day.
