I might buy a car and just park it all day in Zurich.
Alternatively drive it around ZH at precisely 3 km/h over the limit and get flashed like the paparazzi

No kids, no dog, no carpet. The money just keeps piling up in my bank account and I don't know what to spend it on.

Billag can take care of that

That should be good fun but as 3km don't get fined he'll still have his too-much-money-problem.

Exactly. The trouble starts when you go inside and try something.
Or even worse... buy

We've been invited to another wedding. There is significant guest overlap and I don't know what to wear and I don't want to go shopping.

Wear a false beard and sunglasses and cultivate a foreign accent. It's cheaper than getting new clothes.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I now have three outfits to choose from.

I'm definitely sure about the heeled boots and earrings.

How about heeled wellies, in case of wet weather?

Mine go with everything

It's over 3 hours since you wrote that. Are you still sure about the beeled hoots and earrings?

Focus on the feeling that the person inspires in you, not the person him/herself.

Excitement, novelty, warmth...let these feelings fully unfold in you. Then, fully embracing those feelings and sensations, transpose them into your spouse, and find in him/her the spark that ignited your love.

It shouldn't happen, but sometimes, life's commitments and "busy-ness" make us forget to look at our longtime partners the same way we used to look at them. We need to retrain our own hearts and keep the spark alive!

Have spent the past days planning and booking a trip to Canada. The wonderful friendliness and written language of all that I've dealt with in booking wilderness trips etc. has mesmerised me into a state of being that far exceeds my originally planned budget.
