Repurposing the Wii Fund Again

November 21st, 2006

Krissy was going to take the car to work today so she could run some errands. I was planning on sleeping in a little bit so I could drive at least the last leg of the trip and be awake at one o’clock in the morning. She wakes me up just before she leaves and tells me that there is a flat tire. We’ve had a slow leak for about three months, so I’ve been refilling the tire with air every couple of days. Luckily we have a small air compressor that plugs into the cigarette lighter jack. The tires cost about the same amount of money that I had set aside to purchase the Wii. Once again, the money set aside for the Wii has been taken for something more important.

I could get upset that the Wii has been yanked out from under me twice, but as I see it, at least I had the extra money we needed when a sudden need arose. The Wii can wait. I’m just glad that the tire failed now before we drove to Las Vegas. We are leaving tonight.

Maybe I can make some extra money writing articles for News Forge.

    Why do these things happen to you? Curse your tires.

    I could see a sunday school lesson on keeping the sabbath day holy forming out of this story. You don’t buy the Wii on Sunday. You checked out all of the stores on Monday with no luck. Then on Tuesday you have to fix your car to see your family for Thanksgiving. Looked what happens when you obey the commandments. You get to see your family.
