The Tax You Pay
Updated: Oct 27, 2022
My husband and I were married in 2017 at the Tuthilltown Distillery, home of Hudson Baby Bourbon. We were what you might call bourbon enthusiasts so it was the perfect place for our wedding. However, over the years I've come to the conclusion that drinking doesn't really suit me anymore because it generally makes me feel like sh*t. So, my husband has mostly been left to imbibe on his own.
Despite this, we decided to do the Kentucky Bourbon Trail for our 5-year wedding anniversary this past June. I knew going into it that I was going to drink ALL of the bourbon and eat ALL of the gluten (despite my gluten sensitivity) and with that in mind, there would be a tax to pay when it was over.
We all pay tax and not just to the IRS but in our relationships and the way we treat our bodies. I drank tons of delicious bourbon and ate the sh*t out of some cornbread, biscuits and fried chicken. It took me about two weeks to fully recover from this abuse, but it was a small payment for the fun and unforgettable memories I made with my husband.
Was the tax I paid worth it?
What tax do you pay? Should you be paying it at all and is it worth it?
