A somber, or should I say sobering, moment infront of my mirror this morning led to the realization that I cannot, with a good conscience, continue to put off that make-over job I've been procrastinating on these past few years.
Due to that long-standing absolute law of economics otherwise AKA Opportunity Cost, I have to choose between doing up my hair and toning up my body. Both should,hopefully, have the same desired effect of giving my personality a much needed boost of character and who knows maybe even the much sought after side-effect of attracting and holding the attention of the opposite sex.
Now, recession or no recession, this make-over is way overdue and cannot be put off any longer... and being the patriot (sic) that I am, I have to take O's lead and inject some cash into our ailing economy and hope... even should his unprecedented spending spree not lead to the recovery we are all crossing our fingers for, that posterity will remember the intent of my contribution and not judge me too harshly.
So... the costs from a not too analytical point of view and not bothering with updating the figures from years ago when I last attempted the same make-over on a much younger body.
Twisting - $60.00
1 follow ups @ $40.00 each - $40.00
Bi-weekly touch -up @ $25.00 each - $600.00
Cleaning & Conditioning supplies $9:00 per month - $108.00
Total yearly cost $808.00
Sign up fees - $79.00
Uniform plus $100.00 running shoes - $170.00
monthly chrgs @ $39.99 - $479.88
Yearly renewal - $79.00
Total yearly cost $807.88
Mhmmm! Tough choice to make... and now that I see what it's gonna cost me, perhaps I should just let those with the money do the economy revival injection thing... After all, it's the thought that counts.. right?
Besides, I'm an artist... no? No one should care how I look as long as I keep pretending to write... right?
