"Death Pledge"

Shelley and I signed our lives away at the bank tonight. We completed the last of the paperwork for mortgage and downpayments. Then we went across the street to shop for appliances.

While we're pleased that we locked in on a good interest rate (the rate's gone up 3 times since our pre-approval), the realization that after our five years of payment, we'll have paid twice as much in interest than off the principal dimmed our enthusiasm somewhat.

We stopped at McDonald's for some McFlurry dessert and a couple of the highschool guys from Monday night basketball pointed me out: "Hey! it's the basketball guy!" I didn't tell them about my injury, me being so macho and all.
