    One year I had a tough year financially and was really strapped for cash at the end of the year thanks to a huge tax debt. I scrapped up enough to get my kids like one stuffed animal each and my wife a gift certificate for a manicure. I felt like a shitty provider since all their friends were getting playstations and jewelry. Ever since then I started stuffing a $100 bill in a coffee can every two weeks. I NEVER touched that money. At the end of the year I had a nice cushion of $2400 cash so I got a Vegas hooker to give me the girlfriend experience for a weekend and bought some dumb stuff again for the family.

    They have an ad for those on TV here. The guy goes, "My wife always wanted me to have a healthy hobby," as if his prior hobbies were all perverse.
