Nobody’s perfectWritten by hootenannie on July 16th, 2009
I tout myself as a thrifty person – one who hates to waste anything – and will find a use for every half-used jar of marmalade, every discarded ribbon from a birthday present, every unloved piece of furniture.
However, I am a fraud – no better than a snake oil salesman.
My parents recently visited me in Nashville, and my dad bought a 2-liter bottle of Diet Pepsi. I don’t drink pop, but I couldn’t bring myself to dump out the still half-full bottle when he left. So rather than tossing the $1’s worth of leftovers down the drain, I went out and spent $20 on a bottle of rum.
Rum and Diet Pepsi isn’t even an awesome drink.
But I tell you what: every drop of that Diet Pepsi was utilized.
Still, that was really stupid financial reasoning.
I suppose even angels fall.
