A Swim Suit Sale and a coupon!

When I saw the Macy’s ad, I thought Hmm, I’ve been wearing bikini’s in the privacy of my backyard for years. No one comes over except daughter and grandest, after all and they’re way too busy looking adorable in a multitude of new swim suits to look at old Granny so who cares. Right? Hubs thinks I look swell while he’s cleaning the pool and I’m usually writing a book or listening to a book on tape. Then I thought, hey woman, watch yourself. You’re not a kid anymore. Look out for Rumpled-Mom-Skin. At my age, it’s something to consider.
So I got in the car and off to Macy’s I went, found the swim suit section and the sweetest YOUNG woman helped me find a bright print two piece ruffled thingy to cover me. On sale with coupon plus an additional Macy’s reward check for ten bucks!!!!!!! Yippee.
My advice to all who have a stretch mark here and there, take a good look and get yourself a new swim suit for not a bunch of dollars. If I can do it, so can you.

Happy shopping and use lots of sunscreen in the sun.


Buy one, get one free. . .

The husband returns from shopping with four, count them, four cartons of Haagen Daz!

“”We said we weren’t going to have ice cream in the house any more because I can’t stop once I take a spoonful.”
I moan and check the flavors. Butter Pecan, my fave. Chocolate, chocolate chip. Not so bad , either. And two are Vanilla, almonds and chocolate bits. Well that does it.

“Honey, I planned to hide them in back of the freezer section . You’d never know.””

“Never know? You leave an ice cream coated spoon in the sink and believe I ‘d never notice?” Okay. He’s ill and I forgive him but he’s a guy and doesn’t know women don’t take one bit of a brownie or a taste of cake. It’s part of us built in for centuries.

This brings me to another subject. When I see a writer’s book for sale .99 cents, I shiver and wonder what value does the author place on month’s of work, the angst and hours that go into a story. Or box sales? Buy one, get one free? I don’t get it. My personal feeling is value yourself and your words. The author is an artist. Don’t give your treasure away for ranking or a boost in sales.  Call me old fashioned. I’m expressing myself.

Any thoughts out there? You’re welcome to spill. I have plenty of Haagen Daz to share but not for long.
