So, let’s say someone – for the sake of argument, let’s call her Melissa – had three options. And a ticket to the most hotly-anticipated gaming event in Texas.
1. Be financially responsible and a good parent and stay in Melbourne with
my her family.
2. Go to a conference in Boston. Which is directly relevant to
my her work. And fly home with a stop in Dallas. Cost: About $5000. Some tax-deductible.
3. Stop mucking around and book the flights and hotel for BGGcon. Cost: About $2500.
Hypothetically speaking, is there an optimal choice here?
