I’ve got the money in my hand. I’ve got more of it at home and in the bank. This shouldn’t be so difficult.
I’ve planned for this. “It’s fine,” I tell myself.
“Anders, it’s fine.” My wife says out loud what is already in my head.
But there is still that catch, that hesitation, that question right at the corner of my mind. I can afford this. I can. I am a grown man. I have a job, a savings account, a retirement fund.
This shouldn’t be so difficult. I can handle this.
I have the money in my hand.
