Tax Returns = Golf Toys

The Federal Government says payments made toward tuition are deductible.

Who am I to argue?

So, although I work almost full-time, once you subtract what I pay to go to school full-time my adjusted gross income ends up equaling a pack of Skittles and a Mountain Dew. To make a long story longer, I got a fat return this year.

I was feeling a little flush, so I decided to treat myself to something I have wanted since I first saw one more than a year ago. I went to the store and bought a Sun Mountain Speed Cart. I am far too impatient for things like EBay and sales, so I paid full price, and I don’t feel bad at all. It is beautiful.

Like a kid on Christmas morning, I went home to clean my clubs, reorganize my bag, and put the thing together in my living room. In fact, I am typing this at work, looking outside and contemplating excuses to clock out and find a golf course to push my new cart around.

Is that wrong?

If any of you out there have one already and want to comment on how great they are; feel free to do so. I already know, but I love reading it.

Rock on. Congrats on your new purchase. Who says the government doesn't provide for its peoples habits?
