Of all of these posts, this one was one of the hardest. It really does not apply to me. Help me fill in the blanks?
While I live very well, I am not materialistic. I can do without a great many things and choose regularly to forgo the trappings which others seek. I had a hard time trying to think of five items I lust after. It does not help: If I want something, I buy it.
A little known fact about me is: I can go weeks without spending money on anything for myself. You know I do not eat much, so even groceries are something I can do without.
Another little known fact about me is: If I do not have three reasons, I do not buy something; and I want it is not a reason. Yes, there is that pragmatism again. I am green to the core and refuse to waste.
We are going to play what if… What if I could just want something for no other reason than to have something? I truly suck at this. I still cannot think of anything. I already have everything I need.

Did you miss me? Me, neither. Here’s what I came up with whilst I was gone.
The closest I could come to answering this question is to say if I had to want something it would be newer versions of things I already have and enjoy.
1. A new one of these.
Same color. Same model. The bonus would be: The new one has an MP3 player instead of the removable face CD player mine has. Oh, and a new one would not have a quarter million miles on it like mine does.
2. A new crop of these.
3. Another one of these, so my children would have one of their own.
4. (I am struggling here… Be back in a while. I have to think some more.)
(Three days later…)
I give up.
Can you answer this question?
Name some material thing you want.
