A Random purchase

Today, completely out of the blue, I booked a SKY DIVE for tomorrow morning! It isn’t something I ever had a strong inclination to do. It was never on my to do list & I always dismissed it as being too expensive. I, maybe wrongly so, find it very self indulgent spending big amounts of money ...
