Yes, I have lots of material possessions, but I don't think I'm entirely caught up in this insane world where we live, either. I just pulled up the Target ad online, which I do every week, and it's filled with things that we "need" to buy for our dad to make him happy this year. The front page is TV's. $829 or $469 if you choose the smaller one. Are they serious? Who drops that much money on Father's Day? Who *has* that much money to spend on Father's Day? Who is insane enough to go into debt to spend that much on Father's Day?
Thankfully, not me. I love my dad. I really, really love him. However, I can't imagine that he would be happy if I bought him a massive TV that cost as much as my mortgage payment.
OK there's my rant for the day. I'll go spend my time thinking of a more practical Father's Day gift.
