I know as Americans that we are spoiled, really spoiled. We have access to things that people in other parts of the world only dream of. I thought about that last week when Cuba made cell phones legal, and people were lined up down the street to get one for the first time. With that in mind, here's a list of some things that have me spoiled. These are things that I know I could live without, but I hope I never have to:
wool socks - I can't imagine wintertime with just regular cotton socks
ipod - the most awesome invention ever (in my opinion and this is my list)
reduced fat Cheez-Its - much better than the regular greasy Cheez-Its
peanut butter - Jif is my favorite, but I'm not picky. I made a tactical error by not taking any with me when I went to Brazil four summers ago. By the end of the week I would have given $100 for a spoonful.
crossword puzzle in the Greenville News - working on this two or three times a week has kept me from going crazy
Nestle Quik - the powder
Bible - obvious, but I wanted to be sure I listed it so y'all won't think I'm just about food and other unimportant things
Crocs - When they first came out I made fun of people wearing rubber shoes, then I tried some on. Most comfortable shoe ever. I'll still be wearing them when they go out of style, which may be now for all I know.
That's about it. What would be on your list?
