I have an uncle who lives in L.A. I haven't seen him in years. I miss him so much. He's always told me that if life ever gets too overwhelming he would be more than happy to let me crash at his place. Well, life has become too overwhelming, and I'd give my left nut to visit him. I e-mailed him and he said that he'd LOVE to have me come and stay. I was supposed to get a ride to LA with a friend of mine, but knowing my luck this summer, I figured she would flake on me. And guess what? She did!
I'm really tempted to throw down $200 to visit my uncle by plane. I don't have a lot of money in my checking account, but I do have $600 in my savings account that I was saving for a rainy day. Should I take $200 out to visit my uncle?
TL;DR Life sucks. I need to visit my amazing uncle to get away from it all. I need to pay $200 (a third of my savings) to visit him. Should I or shouldn't I?
