A few nights ago, before Husband fell asleep, I asked him an important question. It came to me all of a sudden, and I just had to know: are we billionaires? Husband laughed a little and assured me that we’re not (even close).
The reason I asked was because the exchange rate is more than 1,000won per dollar, which means we’ve got 1,000 and 10,000 and even 50,000 bills in our wallets. Kind of fancy, right?
Today we bought a car. A car! Can you believe it? We spent millions!
I’m sure you can imagine how unprofessional I am at a used car dealership.
Husband: What do you think?
Me: I think it’s a really good deal!
It worked out in the end, and it’s lovely! It’s black! It’s roomy! We are so thankful for such a blessing. We’ve already been scheming about group trips to Costco (because most foreigners don’t have cars and they NEED Costco), transporting students to our house for an evening of China-loving (after we have a house, of course), and even mini road trips with little BP.
We’re so excited!
This, my friends, is what you can buy after you spend three years in China and save over half your income. It is almost exactly the amount we saved. Exactly. How cool is that?
You may be a little nervous because we’re still homeless, but never fear! One step at a time. If finding a place doesn’t work out, I think she might be big enough to sleep in for a while. (Just kidding Mom).
We’re real grown-ups now.
At least we feel like it.
