Day 21 - "Here's What You've Got To Do..."
I have this friend who, among other things, is a bit of a minimalist. I think it’s just a lifestyle that fits him well, not really a conscious decision. He lives in a big house out in the middle of no where with a dog and a cat. Oh yeah, and two horses, a ten foot snake and a turtle that permanently resides in his bathtub. He’s that guy you call when you want to have a big bon fire because A.) He’s got the room, and B.) He’s always got big things like couches or beds or occasionally a Jeep that you can burn.
Anyway, to this point, this guy is the only person I’ve met that’s thought the whole dollar a day thing sounded easy.
“Here’s what you want to do: Get yourself some Nutty Bars from the gas station. I can give you a list of where they sell them for only a quarter a pack if you want. There’s like 325 calories in each pack. That’s 1300 calories a day for your dollar. Hell, that’s more than you actually need. And I’ve lived like that before, so I’m pretty sure it won’t hurt you.”
