Money for the Wireless

I have a dilemma. You see, I bought a laptop. I know, I could have spent that money on so many other things (food, pants without stains, improved living conditions), but I was trying to get the most bang for my buck. I had vowed to not stay so late at school anymore, so I thought I could take more work home with me if I got the laptop.

Well, I discovered that this laptop has "wireless" functionality. Do you know what this is? It means that I can access the internet without any wires. Welcome to the twentieth century, right? Anyway, the signal can go through walls, which is good since I find myself spending a bunch of time out in the streets (alleyways, bus stops, whatnot).

And this is where my dilemma lies. Wi-Fi is great, but I'm using someone else's, paid for, wireless service. It feels like stealing to me, but I can't afford both the computer and the internet access, so what am I supposed to do? Eat less? Perhaps I can justify this newfound morality by saying that I'm stealing for the children. That it's because of the wireless that I am able to get online and fortify my lesson plans for my students. That it's because of the wireless that I am able to keep more efficient attendance records. That it's because of the wireless that I can research newfound teaching methods which are certain to make me a more effective teacher.

Of course, don't ask me how I'm posting this.
