My boss (more like a brother) and I were talking about the elimination of the Pontiac line and I was complaining that I won't be able to get the last of the last Trans Ams. He told me that it would be hard to get since others (collectors, people industry related) will be trying to obtain one. Then he asked: "How often will you drive it?" Well....probably not a whole lot. "What are you going to do with it?" Put it in a car show? "What benefit will you get from owning it?" I uh....um........I....... "In my opinion, Siu - that is a perfect example of an unnecessary possession."
Well thank you for bursting my bubble.
So today when I went to REI for their huge Anniversary sale, the parking lot was full, the lines snaked around the lobby. People were walking around with their arms LOADED with stuff. You'd think it was Christmas!! So I went around, found a whole bunch of stuff and started to load myself up. Woo HOO!!
But the more I walked around, I realized that everything I had was.......well, unnecessary. I didn't need this jacket, I didn't have to have this blouse. I already have a helmet. Do I REALLY need another folding knife? My mountain bike shorts still do the job. Suddenly I heard his voice. UNNECESSARY POSSESSION. One by one, I put it all back. Except for a $7 knife sheath.
So now it's your turn.
What weakness did YOU have for an unnecessary possession?
