365 Writing Prompts: Keeping up with the Jones’

Tell us about the luxury item you wish you could afford,in as much detail as you can.Paint a picture for us.

This is a very interesting prompt, thank you WordPress.

As far as my memory goes I had no intention of wanting something my friend or acquaintance had, simply because I never felt I had to have things the same or better than anyone else.

I was perfectly happy to have what I could afford and I I never failed to appreciate what the so called Jones’ had if it was beautiful.

I remember my husband once asked me, “Ranu don’t you want a house like the one our friends have?”

I told him I did not, my reason was it was too large and I wouldn’t be able to take care of it.

I have no idea what my husband thought, my feeling is why should I go for something that our friends have, if it is not practical?

I am of the opinion not every one is keen to keep up with the Jones!’
