Writing for Fun

Yesterday I wrote a few lines just for entertainment and fun. My friends are used to my humor so sometimes I either tell them or write them something that I find humorous in my life with my Sweet Husband, Larry. So here's my story and I'm sticking to it, although one friend wanted me to swear it was "the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth." Another friend proclaimed "You are So Spoiled." Yet another said "You are the Queen and must dress accordingly." I have some wonderful friends who truly "Stand by Me" in all sorts of situations.


Larry came looking for me to tell me bye this morning and he found me standing in front of my closet, (which is full to exploding) but I lied very nicely, with "honey I don't have a thing to wear" Of course he was trying to look over my shoulder as I adeptly closed the door.

Later I emailed him that I had made it to work and had on some "old rags" I had found deep in the closet to put on. That very "unsympathetic man" emailed me back that he was sure the Thrift Store would be open as usual Saturday Morning. I then told him that perhaps I had some change laying around and maybe they would have something I could afford.

I did a favor for him later in the day by making some phone calls about an old insurance bill they wanted us to pay on the house he sold last year. Anyway I assessed my time and energy and billed him $10.00 so I would have some money to spend for these new clothes I so badly need, from the Thrift Store.

And oh what a "sweet man" he is, as he said that since I was so deprived I could have 10% of the money I had just saved him with my phone calls. So Yippee Skippee I now have $26.68 for my wild shopping spree for new duds.

What'cha think about that? I probably can store them in
the washing machineor under the bed, or hey I can
put some nails on the back of the doors in the
house and hang them there! Whatever works....!

Have A Very Blessed Day, smile often and laugh out loud

Whatever works is right! Loved that story. Thanks for coming by and joining my following friends. How did you find you way to me? I'm always curious when I don't see a connect...like a meme or such.

That's so funny - I swear I've had that exact conversation with my husband a few times now. I love "creative finance" - my mom taught me a few tricks there! Thanks for stopping by A Penny Saved - I always appreciate nice comments on my projects :) I am doing the mural by hand and I don't really know where I picked it up - a few art classes in school maybe, but mostly God just blessed me with an artsy gene pool I guess!
