How much is it (all) worth?

Three little cheese breads. One of them will be eaten without coffee because the coffee maker is jammed and it can take up to an hour to finish making the coffee. The first cheese bread will not wait a whole hour while listening to morning stomach groans, it has to jump right in.

A friend once told me I had to stop turning my money into poop. That I should acquire stuff that lasts and doesn’t stink instead of getting it all in comfort food and beer and cigarettes.
