My $ is Your $
You know those post cards that your college/graduate school sends you in the mail to
update your biographical information because they are editing and reprinting an Alumni Directory? Well we recently got those post cards from our law school. The following conversation ensued:
Him: Oh before I forget, guess what I did today? (with a very proud attitude)
Him: I called and updated our information with University.
Me: ummm...good...that's good. (Thinking, who gives a hoot? and moving on to more important things like the new JCrew catalogue)
Him: I ordered us one too.
Me: WHAT? DAMN IT! YOU BOUGHT THAT THING? THE WHOLE POST CARD THING IS A SCAM SO THEY CAN SUCK $50 OUT OF YOU...WHY WOULD YOU BUY THAT? WHAT DO WE NEED THAT FOR? IT'S A WASTE OF $50.
Him: It wasn't $50...it was $75.
I suppose if my husband kept a blog he could post an extremely similar conversation except instead of a directory, I bought this great runner and napkin set for the table from Williams Sonoma...
Ahhhhh. Marraige, the blending of two souls, and bank accounts...
