Every week I’m discovering some project that I bought years ago and never completed. This week were tubes of paint that you paint on T-Shirts! Needless to say, the paint was dried up and unusable! Then again, that fad of painting T-Shirts is way outdated. So, I chunked the paint and stencils.
Z wonders why we, two folks have so much garbage? I just can’t bring myself to tell him of all the STUFF I’ve bought to fix things and make things and then forgot about it! I’m not in any mood to get preached to on the subject of why I buy STUFF! He thinks an expiration date is a misprint and you can still eat it. Really gets upset when I throw out the Miracle Whip with one teaspoon left. crusted to the bottom of the jar! He deems this WASTEFUL and I should be more conservative.
However, I’ve adopted the response of, "Whatever!" Whatever, pretty much covers it. It’s not saying you’re wrong and it’s not saying he’s wrong. It’s just WHATEVER! Too, saying whatever, pretty much puts a stop to the conversation. He may feel that my saying, "Whatever," is conceding, but to me it’s just not worth getting all huff about! Thus, Z thinks he really showed me. What he doesn’t know is, "WHATEVER!" could be just a, "Not Important!"
P.S. Ever count your blessings, that the child with the ear bob in his nose, isn’t your grandson? I do!
