I have a bad habit.
About four times a week I go to Sonic…and buy a large water.
Just ice. Just water.
It’s kind of ridiculous. But it also makes me happy. Sonic has the best ice in the world.
And sometimes when I ponder my drink-buying habit, I get to feeling guilty. Dave Ramsey would say something like, “Those purchases add up over a year.” But when I do the math, multiplying the purchases times 54 cents, it’s kind of hard to get too worked up.When I start putting it on a Visa to get by, then I’ll reconsider.
And then I think how irresponsible it is to the environment. Those large styrofoam cups will be around when my nephew’s nephew’s nephew is in his nineties.
But then I think about how in the grand scheme of things, I’m not too awful. I mean, when’s the last time I accidentally dumped a super tanker of oil in the ocean and killed thousands of animals and various species? It’s been a really long time. So maybe a few ridiculously large (but never large enough…) cups aren’t so bad.
AND THEN I think…maybe the saddest thing here is that my favorite reward…is ice water.
Maybe that’s the real tragedy here.
What’s a habit you need to break?
