Or, What Prompted Me to Change My Tinder Bio to Simply: Buy me a drink.
$23.95: audiobook version of John Waters’ Carsick because I needed something to listen while flying LA to Chicago. (Hey, that sounds like a Sade song). Audiobooks are expensive but my eyes need a rest sometimes. I had to save them for my own reading at Women and Children First Books.
$4: six-pack of bottled water for hotel room and two Clif Bars
$18.38: shared Uber to Wicker Park from Hyatt Regency O’Hare and back.
$22.92 canvas Doc Martens, $50 minus the friend discount.
Lunch at Mr. Lucky’s in the Hard Rock Hotel. They may have called the turkey burger “Free Bird,” but it cost $15.
