I would like to clear up a possible misunderstanding regarding my attitude in the Powder Puff race report. Yes, it is true I called back over the radio, “I have money. You get to McKenzie’s or KarTek right now and get me a torsion bar!”
However, when I said “I have money” I did not mean, “I am totally loaded and therefore you all should do what I say.”
What I meant was, “I have money from canceling my cable, scrimping on my electricity use, not buying any of the massively cute clothes from the Boden catalog, and even taking on a room mate to help with the mortgage payment, and I would prefer not to give up on this race right now.”
Because really…if I had any money DO YOU HONESTLY THINK I WOULD BE RUNNING A TORSION BAR IN THE FIRST PLACE???
I’m glad we could clear this up.
