She’s Not Cheap…She’s Thrifty
Have I mentioned that my wife is thrifty? Thrifty in a never throw anything away, kind of way, not thrifty in a never buy stuff, kind of way.
I have been chastised for throwing away a used paper towel. “There was still some clean up left in it!”
I have been shunned for tossing a Popsicle stick. “I may need it to prop up the plant on the window sill!”
I have learned to leave a glass with two ounces of water covered by a paper napkin alone. “I wasn’t done with that water...and what happened to the napkin!!?”
In our garage we have a 29 year old stroller/ baby carriage, state of the art in its day, garbage today, because “One of my kids may want it someday!” (No way in hell)
I almost tossed a VCR tape re-winder away…OMG did the you-know-what hit the fan.
I may be a slow learner, but eventually I do learn, I left it to dry.
I know the last straw when I see it.
