Marriage 401, Lecture 635: Shopping alone, II
SH accomplished the meat mission in record time, but then had to revert to type with his trip to Target later last night.
I got a phone call from him while he was there. "What color hair dye do you use?"
"Twenty four clove," I said. "But I have enough."
"No!" he said. "It's on sale for $7.99 and I have a coupon for $8 off two! That's less than half price for both of them!"
OK. Fine. Buy them.
Then I got up this morning and saw what else he had brought home.
Four boxes of razors. "On sale and I had coupons," he said.
A bottle of dish soap.
Two sticks of deodorant. "If I bought those, I got the dish soap free!"
The hair dye.
But wait. There's more. In the car.
"What's in the car?" I asked.
"And paper towels. Which we'll use. Someday. Eventually."
