71. No. Because I didn't say that, did I?
Edited on Tue Sep-21-10 03:50 AM by Pithlet
My point is you aren't struggling if you can afford it. Where did I say one shouldn't do it if they can? Point it out, please! I, myself, have lots of stuff that aren't necessities. They're great. i enjoy them all, thoroughly. But I'm also not claiming to be struggling, either. Edited to tone it down.
