Ever start doing research for a novel and have it completely dissolve or derail from the original subject?
Rachel was telling me the story of all the research she was doing for the day for her George Florence novel. She was researching the costs of apartments to different jobs for one of her characters to the price of engagement rings. One such engagement ring cost over 12 grand.
$12,000 for a very sparkly ring.
While I’m sure the ring itself is gorgeous, I’m in the same boat as Rachel when it comes to those. As Rachel said, “If someone spent twelve grand on a ring for me, I’d kill him.”
My reaction: “Think of all the video games and books you could buy!”
Anyone else agree with our priorities? Would you rather have a ring or the thousands of dollars to spend on books and other hobbies?
