What thing do you really wish you could buy right now?

That thing that makes you say UGH! If only I had/could do.

Time.

Nothing.... I'm good.

@AmiSue
Linda doesn't let that happen.

@AmiSue
Well, that wasn't strategically thought through.
You should have cut, then sold.

@AmiSue
Sharpen the saw.

Today? A Toyota Tundra. I'd settle for a Tacoma. Or a 4Runner.

What about tomorrow?

A new roof.

Teleporter, holodeck or replicator (as seen in Star Trek the Next Generation).

One ticket to New York.

A new (ish) truck. I could, but I'm not crazy about monthly payments. I'd rather save and buy cash.

This will sound trivial and silly... But a drone. Not just any drone... One that hasn't been built yet. They are getting close though. I have been a photographer for over 50 years. To me, a drone is a tool. I have worked as a journalist and in forensics. I wish I'd had a drone back then!
Having said that... I will also say I have lost two drones to water. One in the Mississippi river and another in a park pond. So I want to buy a drone that can swim. Or float or something like that. Drone, serious drones , not childtens toys, are not cheap! I have gone so far as to attach foam floats to the skids of a drone, but they interfere with its flying ability and are susceptible to snagging on tree branches and such. ( more than the drone alone) trees and drones are not a good mix either.
I said it was silly!

I've had a rethink... and it can be bought, legally. There is a sort of drone like vehicle that one sits in and flies... That's about as close as I will ever come to having Superman's ability to fly. It's pretty safe, with the multiple redundancy of many rotors, and it can fly where even a helicopter can't. There is no licensing as yet. It has to be the ultimate gadget toy!

Well, the one wish I have right now is for a fun and well-matched life partner, but that's not a "thing" and I can't "buy" her. If I wanted things or still needed them I could buy whatever I wanted... but it seems I already have 3 of everything I need and 5 of what I don't. The best items on the list below seem to also be things you can't buy... time, hair, health. 😉 The trip around the world would be nice, but only with the right partner. Sigh...

I may have said this...I'll say it again.... TIME

A binder and packer

A house in Utopia.

A TV I could stream to. Sigh.

A car.

Someone to do my yard work that I've ignored because I just can't.

Freedom from having to buy crap

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

I responded to this by saying I would buy a new roof on August 2 of last year. In December, an extremely generous family member gifted me enough to do that and then some. Just before the new year, during the week between Christmas, I was able to hire a good friend of mine to put a new roof on my modest home. So that gift helped me get that roof and provide work for my buddy during a slow holiday season.

Has anyone else been able to buy the thing mentioned?
