Pay day. Yippee. However, just once I would like to look at my check and see an extra $1,000 in it. Just because. I would love to be surprised by my employer with that extra $ as an expression of his appreciation for the awesome job I do. Of course it will never happen. But, I have this hope . . . maybe fantasy is a better word. I would then take $500 of that extra cash and go to the grocery store and not care that peanut butter costs $6 for a small jar. I would throw it in my cart with abandon! I would get plenty of frozen food so that when my son asks "is there anything to eat?" I would point him towards the freezer where he would have an array of yummy frozen microwavable things to choose from. I wouldn't worry that the price of cereal keeps going up while the box keeps getting smaller. I would pick our favorite kinds and throw them in the cart.
Maybe I just need to be a contestant on Supermarket Sweep (is that still on??).
