A Surprising Jump in Prices

Earlier in the week, I got a phone call from a friend of mine. He told me to check out the prices on the bitcoin trading app as soon as possible. I looked on the app and my jaw dropped to the ground. The prices had gone up by over $2000. I bought some bitcoin a couple of months before that, but didn’t do anything with it. I just let it sit while making some checks in the app to see how much it changed. The sharp rise in bitcoin prices meant that I had gained a major profit from what I invested.

I sold the bitcoin I had and put the money into my bank account. To celebrate the profit, my friend and I went to a fancy restaurant to have lunch. This restaurant was one where you would normally spend close to $100 if you went there. We decided to have a feast. We ordered the best cuts of steak, lobster tails with butter, baked potatoes dressed up with everything, and some steamed broccoli for a side vegetable. For dessert, we both ordered creme brule. For once, we were eating like kings.

Even though my friend and I splurged on food at the fancy restaurant, we still had more than enough money from our bitcoin trade to spend on anything. When thinking about what I should spend my money on next, the first thing that came to mind was the roof of my home. The roof had leaked and was patched up at some point, but it was in need of a full re-roofing. I hired a company to take care of that. My friend had a gas fireplace put in his home. He always wanted one and said that it would be useful in the winter, since he could pay the gas bill with his bitcoin money.
