My words are fine, but your brain misinterpreted them.
I bought a car. I would not sell it to finance a move to a new city. I'd sell it because I don't NEED a new BMW in NY. Perhaps I could have clarified. I could easily just take my car and store it and let it rot while I don't drive it.
The exact same amount of money I make right now is not by any means a small amount of money relative to a guy my age in this industry.
And the quip about being an idiot is merely a bit of self deprecation and slight exaggeration. An intuitive reader would interpret that as me saying "Should I stay put and not make any rash decisions given the MULTIPLE pros and cons I already listed that don't all have to do with money?"
But thanks for the attempt at conversation. Much appreciated.
