Proper water temperature is pleasant enough, but is not strictly a necessity, and I am not made of money. That is another expression I have never understood, by the way. If someone was truly made of money, would not they be even more recalcitrant to spend money than if they were comprised of another material? If someone were made of money, and a particular home or other purchase was to cost them an "arm and a leg," as that other expression would have it, it would be even more difficult to decide whether or not that purchase was truly worth giving up the aforementioned limbs. On the other hand, if a person was made of money, it would also stand to reason that their hair and fingernail trimmings would be themselves made of money; haircuts would then cost only the trimmed amount, one might presume, thus eliminating the need to carry a wallet while visiting the salon.
Ah, well. Such things are only hypothetical concerns. For now."
