Forget the fact that I spent $55,000 for my house.
Forget the fact that - 16 years later - I can’t unload it for $20,000.
Forget all that.
What really gets my goat is that yesterday
I spent $5.50 on a toy for my recently-rescued kitten
only to find that he prefers
rolled up panty-liners
(un-used, glue-side out).
(Truth be told, I found this out by accident when I missed tossing my used one into the wastebasket. But from now on, fresh ones only, I promise.)
Cost: $1.30 for 150.
(generic, of course.)
Sometimes it’s the simplest things in life
that make us stop and ponder
Wouldn’t you agree?
