Bad Ideas


I'm cheap. You know I'm cheap. But am I too cheap? Never!! Absolutely never! Never ever!

Except that one time.

This is embarrassing. Maybe I shouldn't tell you this.

While riding my bicycle I became hungry. As I reached into my back pocket for a life-sustaining, 3-for-a-dollar, power bar, I spied an unopened package of peanut butter crackers on the side of the road. You know those orange day-glo cracker sandwiches? They were unopened!! Why not pick them up and eat them for free? What could be the harm? They were unopened! I'd save, like, 33.3 cents!!!!

I took a big bite.

Have you ever snacked on road tar mixed with powdered laundry detergent and poison? The crackers looked like crackers but baking on asphalt had transformed them into something else.

I knew I shouldn't have told you about this. I hope you still love me.

Cheapskate, have you ever tried to save  money and realized it was a big mistake? Do tell!!!!!!


  1. You have to take some risks in life.. now you know. Beware lest you become the toxic avenger. And as to the book... was it a good one? I never go to parties.. must I still learn how to behave?

  2. Hmmm... not sure if my first post succeeded. Nevertheless, you have to take certain risks in life. Now you know. Eat road kill crackers and become the toxic avenger. AS to the book... I never go to parties but ... was it good?

  3. In my opinion: No need to learn how to behave.

  4. My confession was I opened my front door one morning and there was a bag of donuts on the mat. So I ate them all. Later, my husband asked who gave them to me. I didn't know! but they were good.


Hey! Tell me what you think!
