- I have been recently been asked what luxury items I would like for myself if price were no object. At first, I couldn't think of a thing. Not a thing. I can come up with list upon list of things I would like for the man, for the kids and especially this house. (The list for the house would probably bring you to tears.) But I have a had a much too difficult time thinking up things just for me. Finally, I have this list:
Socks. The majority of my socks are the most pathetic things you have ever seen. But whenever I go to buy socks, the price of them throws me back. Why are socks so expensive? It's not a lot of material and it seems to be in a fairly basic shape. It's a mystery. And I'm not looking for fancy schmancy socks. Basic colors and white would be just fine.
Shoes. I would love all new shoes. Shoes for work, shoes for walking, shoes for looking sharp. The catch is that they would have to fit me and my monstrously high arches. Most every shoe I've ever owned I've just had to settle with almost fitting my arch.
A Cut and a Color. (Did you think pants would be next?) I am way past due for afternoon with foil in the hair. Things are getting ugly!
New Eyes. This is the ultimate luxury item that I would want right now. Laser surgery to fix my eyes. That would be grand. I do have contacts, but most of the time I'm too lazy to put them in. To wake up in the morning and being able to see, to swim... I can't imagine what it would be like, but I know that I want it!
So there it is. Looks like about $4000 to me. What does your list look like?
