I know you will be jealous of my Friday evening activity. I ironed napkins. Not just any napkins, either. Paper napkins.
Why? you ask. Because I'm thrifty. A saver. Cost conscious.
Cheap. Like I said, thrifty.
And the napkins weren't mine. They belonged to the Relief Society. They were napkins that we had rolled up, with silverware inside for Enrichment dinners and didn't use them. So, I took them apart tonight and ironed them and viola! Almost new napkins that a
non-cheap non-thrifty person would have thrown away. Money saved? Twenty cents--maybe. Money used for electricity and my time? Priceless. Ha ha. I know, corny.
But...in about a half hour my spontaneous friend, Pam, is picking me up and we are going to Mamma Mia. Again. So, my ironing thrift will pay off as we go to the
cheap inexpensive dollar movie, which I think actually costs a dollar-fifty. They charge the big bucks for evenings.
But in all fairness we paid regular price when it first came out. We didn't even ask for the senior discount, which, of course, we aren't eligible for anyway, being born in the seventies. We made the record books, giving birth to children before our own birth like we did. We should be in some kind of record book. Right next to the man who has foot long fingernails or someone who only eats chocolate. Now there's an idea.
I hope your Friday evening is at least as exciting as mine.
