Could it be… me? Yesterday I got a referral for “pre-school regressive libertarian sandbox”. Pre-school is what my last post was about. But “regressive libertarian”? Wow!
I’m taking Yelena to San Diego to see my niece dance Clara in The Nutcracker. At 12, my niece is graduating from a hard core Russian dance school and will be auditioning for another academy. We are very proud of her.
Originally my mom was supposed to take Yelena to San Diego, but she came down with the flu which she got from us. She can exchange her cheap non-refundable ticket for future travel. Since I was buying my ticket only a few days prior to the flight, I had to pay $400 for a round trip from Oakland to San Diego. Ridiculous. Changing passenger name on the ticket is against FAA rules, which, I suppose, being a regressive libertarian makes me hate travel bureaucracy even more.
I bought Yelena a new dress at the Gap Outlet. She could technically get away attending this performance in her other clothes, but this is the last year she’s wearing toddler sizes, so I felt like I could splurge. Besides, after dropping $400 on my ticket, what’s $25 for the dress? And besides, why should I save if everyone else spends like a drunken sailor and expects a bailout. (Kidding. I have to live up to that regressive libertarian title.)
