Savings & Starbucks

I dread the 23rd of every month because it’s the day that my credit card statement arrives at the parentals’ doorstep that elicits an angry e-mail from Dad that basically says, “What the hell are you doing in Washington, Dean??  ___ Uber’s in one month?!  God gave you legs for a reason.” And so since
