Why It's Okay to Buy Time
You could say I’m lazy. I say I’m just piddling away a few bucks to avoid a life clogged with needless chafes—desolate little tasks that accomplish nothing but their own completion.

They know, as I do, that those minutes you might have spent trying to find the cough syrup aisle are tiny opportunities, gifts you earned by prudently prioritizing.
So cab it to the airport. Order in. Pay the shipping and handling. We get only so many spins around the sun. Do you really want to spend your limited lifetime doing stuff you could avoid, if all that stands between you and a precious few hours is a couple bucks?
