Airplane, or large boat, even though I love to fly and love the water. Too expensive for the time I can actually spend in them.

A boat. A fancy wristwatch (costing over say $150). Expensive wine (costing over $25 a bottle). Another engagement ring, I've bought two and that's plenty.

Any expensive vehicle, that burger that costs like 10k for the happy meal to be included and I can't remember what show I saw that on, but it was a jaw dropper. I don't know if that is the correct price, but it was well into the thousands for one burger meal made by some fancy chef.

Clothing is one that seems important to some. I can remember spending $400 once and then $600 another time for my daughter's dresses for some dance. She looked beautiful. Her mom took them and sold them after the dance and kept the money. They were less than a month old. I barely had enough to eat.

I guess another would be love. You can't buy it. You aren't appreciated for it. I wasn't purchasing love. I was purchasing a less guilty feeling that didn't last. I had no reason to feel guilty. I would have been better off giving her $100 and telling her good luck instead of taking her shopping for hours while she tried on dresses and finally had one fitted.

A bigger house. The one I have is big enough (maybe too big) and more house would just be more to take care of.

I just had to click on the link and read it. I was wondering if that stick thing was some kind of flute to play along while riding. lmao

Imagine my surprise when they said it was a pump to simulate ejaculation...

At worst, I thought it was an odd opium pipe. roflmao

@AandM, does your consternation about that continue with a strap where she can change the size and shape or are you just against her using that particular one? I'm rotten. Sorry.

Don't be sorry. It's Ok, and indeed better to know your physical limitations.
