As a child growing up, I remember my father constantly eating Ramen Noodles in a Styrofoam cup.
It was pretty fascinating that all you had to do was add hot water, and presto, you had a ready to eat meal in a few minutes.
Perfect for an impatient kid!
As I got older I started to notice that the package of Ramen Noodles still existed in our kitchen.
My father had always struggled with money.
He had battled credit card debt and never really made good financial “cents” of his money.
I guess I always just thought that he really liked the cup of Ramen Noodles.
I later found it there was much more to the story.
