Alright, I'm an honest chap. So I have to admit I failed Meany B's stupid 28 Day Challenge yesterday.
I tried, I really really tried not to buy any toys for the whole month of February. But when I spotted this original Thundercat Tygra from 1985 at the swap meet, and the girl selling him said she'd take a quarter, I looked all around and couldn't see my girlfriend anywhere - you know, so she could buy him for me and I could stay true and honest to Chunky B's Challenge. Loophole? Maybe, but whatever.
I then dug in my pocket (an automatic reflex when at the swap meet) and dug out all my money - a dime and two nickels.
The chance to own a cheap Tygra AND haggle five cents off the asking price was just too much for my weak soul to bear. I asked if she'd take twenty cents for him and she said yes.
Totally worth it.
Maybe I'll see if I can make it the rest of the month without buying another toy. I mean, I did only spend twenty cents - I should get some sort of pass or something! People lose more than twenty cents worth of change every time they sit on their couches, it's not like I bought a Shogun Warriors Stormtrooper or anything!
And besides, my most needed toy of the past couple weeks is already in my hands, but more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned, Toyruffians!
