“So, here is what I am thinking,” my husband Marc said to me one morning, as he pulled papers out of his laptop bag. “I think we need to replace the shower doors in our bathroom.”
“Why?” I asked.
“Well, they are fifteen years old, and they are not in good condition. I don’t like the way they close, and I think clear glass would be much nicer than the frosted designed glass we now have, don’t you?”
“Yeah, but do we really need to change it? Is it worth it?” I questioned.
“Here,” he said, handing me the papers. “I cost it out yesterday.”
I looked over the papers. “Hmm, I thought it would be more, but still. Does it pay to do?” I asked. By far, I am the cheaper one of the couple.
“Let’s look at it this way. We shower every day, right?”
“Right,” I replied.
“Wait,” he clarified, “You actually shower twice a day, right?”
Again, I answered, “Right.”
“So, don’t we deserve to have the best shower experience possible,” he asked.
“Well, if you put it that way,” I started to giggle.
“Yea, that is the only way to look at it,” Marc answered with a smile. “It is simply a quality of life adjustment!”
Marc and I both rationalize our purchases…. Do you?
