I was in the process of balancing my checkbook and going through receipts and itemizing various purchases on our monthly budget so there will be no mystery at all as to why we can't afford anything considered 'luxurious' (like a canopy bed--I've wanted one since I was a child), when I had one of those strange morbid thought processes. I started imagining my dead body being discovered by police and when they are looking for clues as to my identity all they find are the contents of my wallet. My driver's license only reveals that I take horrible pictures and am slightly delusional when listing my eye color as 'green' rather than 'hazel.' But the saddest thing ever is when they check my receipts and for a whole month the only places where I had purchased anything had been from Wal*Mart and Smith's! I then imagine the police looking at each other sadly and saying,"Well, this dame didn't really get out much did she?" And that's when the thought process starts to deteriorate since I don't really think any of my current city cops would say dame.
But back to reality---for a whole month the only evidence of me leaving the house was to buy things from Wal*Mart and Smith's! How sad is that? Granted, I am sure there were some online purchases that would make me look a little more exciting (like the wild purchases from Amazon.com) but I don't print those out and shove them in my wallet for the cops to find. Should I just make it a goal to have some exciting receipt in my wallet to make me feel a little more adventurous? Or should I just accept the fact that I am going to make one boring dead body?
