There is a wonderful word in (slang) Brazilian Portuguese, "bagulho" (pronounced bah-GOOL-you). Its most common definition is "Something you don't need that you buy with money you don't have."

I don't think there is an exact English equivalent.

I hate to tell you about guys like me: I am always happy. I am stuck with a good attitude. I believe some things one is born with.

My Dad and brother were born with bad attitudes. I was born with a good one.

My wife says that this statement is typical of me (Said sincerely): "I am glad that I have a good attitude."
