LOL @ I give up.
So I had this chat with my friend Deedee (not real name) this afternoon. Deedee complains often that I'm too low maintenance. This afternoon I put up one of the pictures above as my whatsapp display picture and she immediately sent me a message to say that I would look much better wearing long weaves.
Do you know I actually agree with Deedee? I would look way prettier with long bouncy weaves. But no matter how much money I make, I can't seem to part ways with 100k to buy hair, not because it's too expensive or not worth it, but because I'd always find something better to do with the money. I have a few weaves that were given to me by my elder sister before she became a naturalista which I still use occasionally, and when I really really REALLY need to, I could buy a very affordable weave of about 50k at most but I've never spent over 60,000 on hair and I don't think I could. I have friends who spend as much as N400,000 on one weave and to them it's money well spent. Me, honestly I just can not! LOL. I'd much rather spend much less cash on my durable kinky braids and take my mind off my hair for months so that I can focus on other things.
But I realize everyone has those things that they absolutely can't spend cash on. Some people can never buy perfumes. My sister, for example. She loves and has some of the most expensive perfumes but she believes that perfumes ought to be given as gifts and never bought with one's own money. Some people can't spend their money on books, if they cannot get an e-copy then that's that. Some absolutely refuse to spend money eating out and would much rather go to the market and cook what they want. Some refuse to take a taxi when they can take a bus. Some refuse to fly business class and insist on economy. Some would NEVER pay to attend a business (or motivational) conference and so on.
It's not due to lack of cash, the cash could actually be in abundance but you just find there are certain things you that you cannot part with (good) cash for.
Do you have one of those things you hate to spend your money on? Gist me. ☺️
