Beggars Can’t Be Choosers

No, I’m not begging for anything. I was planning on snagging the 21” from the tower when Josh got a new , but so far, it’s looking like I’m not going to be able to. Found the perfect tower for Josh, but it doesn’t come with a monitor. It’s okay, though. He deserves a sweet computer. God knows he works hard enough for us to afford it!
