Went with Ian, Tim and Andy to Costco this afternoon to pick up a few basics. I’m sure it is not you, dear readers, but the rest of the world needs to get a handle on the free sample thing! People, especially old ones, are out of control. Once again I remember why I avoid warehouse shopping on Fridays.
On our way home, we stopped at Goodwill, because it was there. I have been looking for a long table for the televison, but no luck. As I was just about ready to leave, I noticed a stack of chairs in the corner. Sure, they were bright green, but they were sturdy. I flipped a chair over, it was a restaurant chair. The chairs we have had for the past 10 years were hand-me-downs from Chili’s and they were old when we got them from Chili’s. Still they were sturdy and up to hard use by six people all day everyday. These new chairs? Same maker, much newer model. Our kitchen is many things and one of them is multi-colored! I’m going to stick with the bright green through Christmas. The seats will be easy to re-cover once I figure out what the chairs are going to look like. In the meantime, we’ll all be sitting in level chairs! So exciting! Go ahead, guess what I paid for four awesome chairs?
Okay, you gave up pretty quick. I paid $6.99 per chair. Go ahead, flip me a fish!!!! Or not. That deal was pure luck. No skill involved.
It’s the weekend and I’ll be dedicating myself to bad fiction, my own fiction in particular. I’ll check in when I can. As always, I’d appreciate a few extra thousand words if you have some just floating around.
