My husband's company gave him two tickets to Game 5 of the World Series, which was played last night in Philadelphia.
I like the Phillies, but I liked the idea of having $5,000 in my pocket a whole lot more. That is how much our seats were going for on the Black Market.
"Selling the tickets is tacky," my husband reminded me. "Plus, this will be an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life."
I told him that a trip to Hawaii would be equally memorable, and could be experienced without long underwear and ear muffs.
After I finished mourning the loss of what might have been, I had a great time. My family loves sports and the experience of being at a World Series game was nothing short of incredible. It was way better, in fact, than paying off our student loans or a week-long vacation to a tropical island in the dead of winter. Way.
