Today I called up Emily and said, "I'm sorry. I did something bad." She followed up with, "What did you buy now?"
"Another set of dishes. But this was too good of a deal to pass up!" I have been wanting a set of simple white plates with a platinum ring for a while now. I had been blessed to find a set of eight dinner plates, salad plates, dessert plates, and bowls for a discounted price of - yes - $3.25. Now there was no way I could pass it up! So here I was possibly in trouble, not for the price, but for the fact we already own about 100 other plates! Luckily, I have a great wife and she forgave me. But the worst part of all is when I buy a new set of dishes, the voices in my head keep chanting "Party! Party!"
