This current recession that we are in has effected a lot of us. My family has certainly been effected. To that end, I have started making some changes around my house. No more Wasteful Wanda for me! No, sirree!
Take, for example, a loaf of Italian bread that I recently purchased. We ate a little more than half of it and then it started to mold. The old me would have thrown the bread out. The new over-stimulated-recessed me did not. I carefully scraped the mold off and put it in an old pill bottle (which the old me would have also thrown out) to use for administering relief to my husband’s cold. Even though he doesn’t have a cold because, as he says, “Doh I do dot hab a cold. I always talk like dis. [sniffle sniffle].” Because I am being frugal (and not slovenly), I am totally prepared for the impending national health care crisis.
Oh yeah and once the mold was scraped off, that bread was still perfectly and magically delicious.
Next week in my new series “How To Survive A Liberal Take-over”, I will discuss the proper way to maintain a fall-out shelter and how to be a good fall-out hostess.
