At first I thought I should get the $9 bowl that I normally have— amazingly delicious and filling.

It would be a waste to spend 300% as much on this one that had oxtail in it.

But then I decided that I was worth it. And it would leave me with regret to not know how pho at level 10 (credit Glenn Vo ) would taste.

I’m glad I did, instead of leaving with defeat.

And I did finish it, too— a ton of meat.

Sometimes do things for yourself.

Reward yourself— you’re worth it.
