Last week, my friend, Brent, took me out to lunch at the Seminole Hardrock. When we were walking out of the casino, we ran into some promoters offering $15 to test drive a Ford Flex.
My eyes lit up. We got to ride in the nice CUV and got $15 gift cards. I was very thankful for the loot. Fifteen dollars would pay for an eyebrow waxing, a manicure or a meal at a Cuban restaurant. Instead of splurging, I spent the money at Publix (sexy, right?) and bought some fruit, vegetables, tomato sauce, soy milk and nuts. I wanted to cook a big vat of spaghetti, so I needed some more ingredients. I’m such a bore, right? The tab was $15.24.
What would you do with $15? Have you ever gotten money from a street promotion? What did you spend it on?
BTW, that Ford Flex rides likes a dream. It’s just too big for my needs. I don’t have kids!
