Things I refuse to buy:

• Drugs: All I gotta do is stand in the elevator at 2 in the morning and inhale the remnants of someone else's hotbox.

• College-ruled notebooks: What? Just because I'm in college means I all-of-a-sudden start writing smaller?

• Ugly Christmas sweaters: Why pay money for something I can get for free in my frumpy aunt's closet?

• A graphing calculator: Or any math paraphernalia for that matter. That stuff should be illegal.

• A new book bag: What's wrong with having the same one since I was in eighth grade? At least it's not the one I had before that … the pink one, with the wheels, and a big Tweety Bird on it.

• Heels that I can't walk in: They just need to get me from "Bar A" to "Bar B" and not be too expensive to trust in the hands of the nice guy helping me into the taxi. Oh … I guess he's coming, too?

• Body butter: What am I, a piece of toast? It's hard enough being a piece of meat … now I have crumbs?!?

• Ink pens: There's nothing wrong with the Viagra pen I found in the Panchero's bathroom. Also: it's fun to take notes with it in class and make sure the label faces my professor. Just sayin'.

• Chapstick: Because the Avoid the Stork campaign has me set for life.

• Flatware: Marketplace fork, meet purse.

• Expensive flip-flops: Why spend more than two bucks on something my grandma is gonna call "thongs"?
