The other morning, as Dale and I were making the bed together, I was remarking on how much I love brand new sheets. And Dale mentioned someone he read about who was very rich and only wore underwear and socks once and threw them away. That sounded like an urban legend to me but I did google it and it turns out that Floyd Mayweather (who I had never heard of until now and certainly never thought would be showing up in a story on this blog) wears his boxers once and tosses them. For the record, I don’t think that’s who Dale meant.
That would not be something I would do should I find myself with unlimited funds. But it got me to thinking . . . if I had lots of money and I had to spend it only on things for myself or my home (not for helping my family or changing the world for better or travel, in other words, which are at the top of my list of things I’d do with loads of money) what would I want to indulge in?
The answer takes us right back to the opening sentence of this post. Sheets. I would want brand new sheets, that had been washed and line dried, on the bed every night. I love how crisp they feel, I love how the fitted sheet is taut and not all wrinkly, and I adore the way they smell. And they would be brand new, but washed and dried outside on the line, every day. And someone else would change them. Heh.
This is a silly post and I know it. But my brain is preoccupied and it’s all I’ve got right now. So, indulge me and tell me, what’s the thing you’d want to have as new over and over again?
