I'm not feeling any bewilderment towards this guy. It seems that he acknowledged repeatedly that yes, he IS rich and he knows it. Yet due to anxiety he constantly frets about what tomorrow might bring. He sounds like a sensitive, worrier type. Being a doctor, he probably deals more with death and insurance company BS than your average person does, seeing families lose their loved ones/savings because of illness - that's enough to keep anxiety at a constant hum if it's something to which you're predisposed.
I would be THRILLED if someone brought me grapefruit seltzer. Absolutely thrilled.
Logan, the fact that you busted out Brian McKnight for the last 1 Thing post makes the ensuing silence more bearable. Congratulations on your new job! My 1 thing today will be to do a bunch of annoying things at work that I've been putting off since my one teammate has been on vacation. He's back now, so I can't use "But I'm the only one here! I can't possibly get to this today!" as an excuse any longer. Though he is taking the afternoon off...
@jfruh I had a setup like this in college, with two roommates. One had the bedroom near the front door. I had the biggest bedroom, and our third roommate had a small half-bedroom that you had to walk through my bedroom to get to. It was, well, not fun for many reasons. Surprisingly, this did not destroy our friendship - probably because we were able to focus our annoyance on the girl with the separate bedroom. (I have a fun story about how separate bedroom girl made 9/11 All About Her, but I'll save it for another time.)
@Franny Oh sweet, my front closet has a tiny window in it, about 12" x 17". Time to make some $$$$$.

@stuffisthings Wren am I supposed to find the time to hang around The Billfold making puns? Although, one of my cardinal rules is to pun whenever possible, so even though I'm busy at work today here I am because I know I'll egret not joining in the fun.
@stuffisthings He needs to start a nest egg for his rent money.
@Bill Fostex I put the "edamame" friends on dish duty while the rest of us relax in the parlor with a glass of champers. If their dinner contribution was especially meager, they can mop the floor too.
