Backstory: Team McJohnson is headed to Europe in a month. We currently have one credit card between the two of us that doesn’t charge a foreign transaction fee. We learned this the hard way when I purchased our IcelandAir tickets on my Bank of America Visa. (I politely requested the $65 fee back from BoA and received it.) Josh started to shop for another card without a foreign transaction fee. I received the following e-mail from him, with the above title as the subject line.
I was approved for a Bank Americard Travel Rewards credit card. This card has everything: No foreign transaction fees, an introductory 12 month period of 0% APR, generous rewards, and smart-chip technology that will make it easier to use the card in France and Iceland.
And I received a $16,000 credit limit. My feelings about that?
I love him so much.
Setting: the apartment, getting ready to go to bed
Me: I’ve heard really good things about Moneyball! I didn’t know it was written, or at least the book was written, by Michael Lewis.
Josh: Michael Lewis? Really!
Me: Yeah! And did you know he is married to Tabitha Soren? Do you know who that is?
Josh: Of the Soren Foundation*?
Me: Did you just say that?
Josh: I don’t know what I’m saying.
Me: No, Tabitha Soren of the mid-90s MTV News.
Josh: Oh, don’t listen to anything I say after 10pm.
* I have Googled and this does not come up with anything. He was really making things up.
