Of course, I do want it...

Can't afford it.....

Actually, I can, but I shouldn't....

Or should I....?

$1250 can buy a nice basic custom sword from some makers....

And I am looking to get a new car this year....

Still.... this opportunity doesn't come up very often....

Someone buy this book before I go insane!!!!! Eek!

My wife is too accomodating, but I think this purchase would push her over the line!

Too bad.
