My Birthday Wonder!
Posted March 5, 2013on:
Dear daughter Elysha,
Wow! In addition to the little lap desk that you’re going to give me (I’m just testing it in advance right now), Rita and I went shopping yesterday and got me a nice used electric razor and a used pair of running shoes at Thrift Stores.
You may ask why used stuff is so wonder-ful. An important part of wonder is surprise. Anybody can buy a new razor for $40 or new running shoes for $60. But what a surprise to find size 13 for $5! Or a nice electric razor marked down from $5 to $2! All it took was a little persistence and the willingness to visit a couple of local non-profit thrifts instead of driving to a big box store.
And I get Medicare. 65 is great!
Hope you’re having as much fun as I am. I’m doing important stuff too.
