I will only buy what I need for the next five days.

I went to buy beer for the weekend. Picked up a carton of the second cheapest beer because fuck it, you only live once. Get to the counter, the girl serving asks me if I want to add another six pack for $10. I told her that the carton was already plenty of beer. She responds with “yeah, but it’ll run out.” This was the greatest truth I’d heard all week. The beer WILL run out. I WILL inevitably buy more. But I just can’t commit to that kind of foresight. I will never buy anything in advance to save money. No matter how much sense it makes, no matter how much extra I end up paying when I actually end up needing it. I will only buy what I need for the next five days tops. Is this capitalism? Have I been brainwashed somewhere along the line? Or am I just a cheap cunt? The answers to these  and more on the next episode of My Terrible Blog.
